Housing Choice Voucher Program - Applicants


In order to apply for assistance, the waiting list must be open.  Our waiting list is currently closed. 

We are now processing applications that were distributed during our 10/9/13 opening.  Due to the overwhelming number that were received by our office, it will be several months before data entry will be completed.  Please do not call our office to find out your placement is on the list.  Once all applications have been entered, you will be notified by mail. 



Eligibility for a housing voucher is determined by the EPHA, based on the total annual gross income and family size. Participation in this program is limited to US citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status as defined by HUD. In general, the family’s income may not exceed 50% of the median income for the area in which the family chooses to live. HUD regulations require that the EPHA must provide 75 percent of its vouchers to applicants whose incomes do not exceed 30 percent of the area median income. Median income levels are published by HUD on an annual basis and vary by location.

The current income limits in our jurisdiction are available by clicking here.
