How does the program work?

Once you are approved for the program you will be scheduled an appointment for a briefing. At the briefing appointment, if you bring all required documentation with you, you will be issued a voucher and you may begin looking for a unit right away. Once you have found a suitable unit and you turn in your Request for Tenancy Approval (RTA), an inspection must be scheduled. When the unit has passed final inspection, you will be notified when your lease paperwork is ready to sign and what your portion of rent will be.

Inspections/Housing Quality Standards

Upon initial move-in there will be an initial inspection to determine whether the unit is decent, safe and sanitary according to Housing Quality Standards. A redetermination of the unit’s acceptability will be made at least once a year when you remain on the program.

What is Portability?

Portability is the ability of a family to move from one Housing Authority’s jurisdiction to another location. You must lease in our jurisdiction for at least 12 months before you may port your voucher to another location and we will have to have the funds to send you at that time.
