Applications for the Housing Choice Voucher Program Waiting List will be accepted later this month, the county announced today.

The program provides tenant-based assistance in the form of a voucher to low-income families, seniors and persons with disabilities for rental units chosen by the tenant in the private market.

The Housing Authority provides payments directly to participating property owners to offset the cost difference between tenant payments and unit rent.

Program applicants choose from a variety of housing options ranging from apartments, duplexes, single-family homes, or individual rooms.

Due to limited funding availability, applications will be selected and ordered using a random lottery system. Not all applicants will be placed on the waiting list.
