Section 8 - Housing Choice Voucher Program


The Section 8 (HCVP) Waiting list is currently closed unless the applicant qualifies for the Veteran preference.

The Housing Choice Voucher Program offers the participants freedom of choice in finding a privately owned housing unit. The unit selected must meet HUD approved Housing Quality Standards (HQS)

Housing Choice Voucher Program

  • Residents receive a voucher allowing them to rent housing owned by a private landlord.
  • Vouchers provide Tenant-Based subsidy.
  • If the resident moves out, they have a maximum of 120 days to find and be housed in a new unit.
  • A resident can later move to a new location after giving proper notice to the landlord.
  • If the established unit size needs to change because of an increase or decrease in family size, the resident may use their voucher to transfer to a PHMA approved unit of appropriate size chosen by the resident family.
