Frequently Asked Questions about Vouchers and the Waitlist
What is a Housing Voucher and what does it do?
A housing voucher is used to pay a portion of your rent based on your income.
If I am on the waitlist, what happens next?
When vouchers are available, you will be contacted when you come to the top of the list. At that time, Housing Catalyst will ask for documentation verifying eligibility. Once eligibility is confirmed, you will be invited to a meeting to receive a voucher and information about the program. You will then be responsible for locating an eligible rental home in Fort Collins where you can use your voucher.
