HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER

The program allows low-income families the freedom to choose quality housing while maintaining rent payments they can afford. Qualified applicants and participants select units owned by private landlords. These units must qualify under Housing Quality Standards and Rent Reasonable Certification. The client's rent portion is based on 30% of their gross adjusted monthly income. If the rent and utility allowances do not exceed the payment standard, SBHA will issue the balance of the rent directly to the landlord. Upon initial lease renewal, the client's rental portion cannot exceed 40% of their current gross adjusted monthly income.
