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.
