RENTAL ASSISTANCE :: HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER RENTAL ASSISTANCE PROGRAM

Description

The Housing Choice Voucher rental housing assistance program serves low and very low-income households with housing assistance. The program provides financial assistance to enable eligible participants to lease existing rental units from participating landlords who offer decent, safe, and affordable rental housing at rental rates within the HUD published Fair Market Rents (FMR). Each unit must pass a Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspection and the rent for the dwelling must be rent reasonable as compared to other similar units in the same geographic area.

Participating tenants pay approximately 30% of their adjusted income toward their rent, with the balance paid by the Housing Authority.

The AHA does not have sufficient funding to assist all applicants that apply for rental housing assistance. As a result the AHA maintains a waiting list. The AHA contacts applicants that it selects from the waiting list by mail or e-mail. It is the responsibility of the applicant to notify the AHA of any changes to the information they provided on their application, especially their contact information. Applicants are expected to update their application or check the status of their application online.

The AHA selects applications from its waiting list when funding becomes available to provide rental housing assistance for additional households. Applicants are selected from the waiting list in order of the date and time of application and based on local preference criteria.

Preference Criteria #1: Applicants that live or work in Arlington, Texas
Preference Criteria #2: Applicants that are employed (applications where the head of household or their spouse are elderly (age 62 or older or disabled are included in this preference)

Criteria for Eligibility

Participants must have a total family income at the time of application that does not exceed the "Very Low Income" level of HUD Income Limits.
