Program Description
The housing choice voucher program provides assistance to very low-income families to afford decent, safe,
and sanitary housing. Housing can include single-family homes, townhouses and apartments and is not limited
to units located in subsidized housing projects.
General Program Requirements
Housing choice vouchers are administered locally by public housing agencies (PHAs). A family that is issued a
housing voucher is responsible for finding a suitable housing unit of the family’s choice where the owner
agrees to rent under the program. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the PHA on behalf of the
participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and
the amount subsidized by the program.

Your Next StepsThe following information will lead you to the next steps to apply for this benefit.
Application Process
If you are interested in applying for a voucher, contact the local PHA:
http://www.hud.gov/offices/pih/pha/contacts/

Program Contact Information
For further assistance, please contact the HUD Office nearest to you: http://www5.hud.gov:

************************************************

As I search for rentals throughout our state, I look for certain criteria:

1. I have decided to not list so many houses for rent, as apartments, in most cases do include heat. Please keep in mind that winter is at our door-step and the cost of heating is on the rise. The monthly rental may seem a bit higher priced, however, it will be worth it in the long-run.

2. I will not list housing that requires a fee for their service, nor a fee per call. I do agree with a fee, however for the back-ground and/or credit check, THE FEE IS APPROPRIATE, since those companies providing the background check and credit check do charge a fee for their services.

3. I will do my best to keep the maximum rental amount within the cost of living to your area, however, if Section 8 or TRA is accepted the rental amount may be more because there are times when the utilities are included.

4. I will not list without the rental amount included

5. I try not to list rental opportunities that offer “Option to Buy” – I have found that in most of these situations it does not work out properly for either party involved. I am working on a “First Time Home Purchaser” list of programs from throughout the State, that operates in an official capacity to help those that are working so diligently to raise their families and deserve to show something for their hard, hard work.
