On August 26, 2022, HUD announced that approximately 19,700 new incremental Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) will be allocated to housing authorities nationwide. The HCV program helps to make rent affordable for very low- and extremely low-income individuals and families residing in privately owned rental units. While new voucher programs have been developed to serve targeted populations, this is the first expansion of the traditional HCV program in over twenty years.
HACSB serves approximately 8,000 families through the HCV program, providing a critical safety net that helps prevent homelessness and ensures that families have the freedom to choose where they want to live. Through the national expansion of the program, HACSB will be allocated 99 new Housing Choice Vouchers. These new vouchers will help us to serve families currently waiting for assistance.
