The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program is a rent subsidy program funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The program enables very low-income families to obtain standard housing. To be eligible, an applicant individual or family must be very low-income (below 50% of area median). Families/individuals are expected to contribute 30% of adjusted monthly income toward rent and utility expenses; the balance, subject up to established ceilings, is subsidized. Each unit is inspected to ensure that the unit meets minimum housing quality standards before a lease and Housing Assistance Payment contract are signed. Each year the assisted families are re-evaluated to determine whether their incomes still permit them to qualify for assistance under the program and to adjust the family's portion of the rent. Units are also reinspected annually to ensure compliance with HUD's Housing Quality Standards. We are currently funded to assist approximately 646 families in Henderson and Transylvania Counties .
