Housing Choice Voucher Program

The Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8 of the Housing Act of 1937) is a federally-maintained housing assistance program for low-income households. This program helps individuals obtain safe, sanitary, and decent housing in the private market. In other words, housing vouchers help individuals and families obtain housing at a rate they can afford.

Although it is a federally-funded program, local public housing agencies, like Montrose County Housing Authority, administer the vouchers at a local level. Each public housing authority (PHA) receives funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer the voucher program.
