Housing Choice Voucher Program
The Housing Choice Voucher program is the federal government's major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market.  Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses and apartments.  Housing Choice Vouchers are administered locally by OCHA who receives funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer the voucher program.  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.  Rental units must meet minimum standards of health and safety as determined by OCHA per HUD guidelines and be within the PHA's reasonable rent payment standards.  A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by OCHA 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.
