The Housing Choice Voucher Program is a rental assistance program for low income persons or families who wish to live in privately owned housing. If determined eligible by the Housing Authority, the participant has limited time to find a suitable unit offered by a private landlord that must pass our inspection standards. The tenant pays approximately 30% of their monthly income towards rent and utilities and the Housing Authority pays the remainder of rent directly to the landlord.
For more information on the Housing Choice Voucher Program, call 724-287-6797, option 4.
In order for your unit to pass inspection for the Housing Choice Voucher Program, it must meet certain requirements of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This list covers those items which most commonly cause a unit to fail an inspection.
