Housing Choice Voucher Program

(WAITLIST IS closed)

What are housing choice vouchers?

According to the Housing Choice Voucher Program Fact Sheet on the US Department of Housing and Urban Development’s website, “the Housing Choice Voucher (formerly known as Section 8) is the Federal Government’s major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses, and apartments.”

The Housing Authority of Fulton County administers over 1400 Housing Choice and Portable Vouchers.

How affordable is voucher-assisted housing?

The formula used in determining rental payment is the highest of the following:

  • 30% of adjusted monthly income (after allowed deductions), or
  • 10% of monthly gross income, or
  • $50 minimum rent

The purpose of the Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV) is to assist very-low, low, and moderate-income families in renting safe, decent, and sanitary dwelling units in the private rental housing market. Unlike the public housing program, the Authority generally does not own and manage the HCV program’s property.

The HCV program is designed to achieve four objectives:.

  • To provide improved living conditions for very low-income families while maintaining their rental payments at an affordable level;
  • To promote freedom of housing choice and integrate lower-income and minority families into mainstream society;
  • To provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing for eligible participants and;
  • To provide an incentive to private property owners to rent to low-income families by offering timely assistance payments.

The Housing Choice Voucher Program operates much like a regular market program. It provides participants the freedom and flexibility to select housing in the neighborhood of their choosing, including the unit that they reside in before receiving their assistance. It gives landlords the right to choose or reject an applicant, if the applicant’s rejection is not discriminatory, as defined by the 1988 Fair Housing Amendments Act.

HAP CONTRACT PAYMENTS:
As subject to the term of the HAP contract, the Authority must make HAP payments to landlords on the families’ behalf at the beginning of each month. If a lease term begins after the first day of the month, the first month’s HAP payment is prorated for a partial month.
 
Therefore, the HAFC will make every effort to ensure that payments by the 10th working day of each month.
