Housing Choice Voucher

The Housing Choice Voucher, commonly known by the name Section 8, is PMHA’s largest housing assistance program. Funded by the federal government through the Department of Housing and Urban Development, Housing Choice Vouchers assist low-income, eligible households with paying for rent and utilities from private landlords. Participants are free to rent virtually any unit that meets program standards for cost and housing quality.

Under the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV), a participating household receives a voucher and must find a qualifying rental unit owned by a landlord willing to rent to them. The household share of the rent is determined by a formula, and the housing authority then pays the landlord directly for the difference between the household’s rental share and the market rent. The housing unit must pass a housing inspection to assure PMHA it is safe and sanitary and must have a reasonable rent for the housing market.

PMHA hosts quarterly Landlord Orientation meetings. Property owners, managers, and realtors are invited to attend, to learn more about how the Section 8 program offers a unique opportunity to earn income while encouraging community development.
