Housing Choice Vouchers

Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) provide rental assistance towards the cost of rent in the private rental market.

The HCV program provides quality rental housing for families, seniors and persons with disabilities who are earning incomes well below average. The HCV Program allows eligible households to rent from any qualified private landlord who accepts rental assistance vouchers. Participants negotiate their own lease and Housing Catalyst pays a portion of their monthly rent directly to the property owner, based on their income and size of the household.

Rental assistance allows families & Individuals to redirect household income to education, healthcare, child rearing and other household expenses.
