Housing Choice Vouchers
In the HUD Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV), HUD pays rental
subsidies so eligible families can afford decent, safe and sanitary housing. HUD
provides housing assistance funds to the PHAs to subsidize eligible units and to
administer the HCV Program.
The PHAs determine income eligibility for a family. Families
select and rent units that meet program housing quality standards. If the
Augusta Housing Authority approves a family’s unit, the Augusta Housing
Authority will contract with the owner to make rent subsidy payments on behalf
of the family. The Augusta Housing Authority may not approve a unit unless the
rents are reasonable.
