The Housing Choice Voucher program is an essential resource for low-income families looking for affordable housing. It offers rental assistance to eligible households, allowing them to rent a home from a private landlord and pay only 30% of their income towards rent. The remaining balance is covered by the program.

The opening of the waiting list is an opportunity for eligible families to apply for the program and improve their living conditions. With the availability of online pre-applications and computer access for those without internet, the application process has become more accessible, making it easier for eligible households to apply for assistance.
