What are Housing Choice Vouchers?

The Housing Choice Voucher program is the federal government's program for assisting very low-income families, elderly, and the disabled 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. Housing Choice Vouchers are administered locally by Public Housing Agencies (such as the Housing Authority of the County of Butler).
