The MTW Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program, commonly referred to as the Section 8 program, provides eligible households a housing subsidy that allows them to rent privately-owned market rate apartments. Typically, voucher holders pay 30% of their income toward their rent, and CHA pays the rest up to a cap called the payment standard.
Minimum requirements for eligibility include:
- Household Income does not exceed 50% Area Median Income and,
- Applicants or household meet the definition of Family or Elderly and/or Disabled.
