HCVP (formally Section 8) provides rental subsidies to income-eligible individuals and households. Participants generally pay between 30-40% of their monthly adjusted income towards their housing cost and the remainder is directly paid to the landlord. Housing Services staffs perform health and safety inspections on each housing unit before rental assistance can begin and at least once per year thereafter.
Applicants are ranked based on the time and date of their application. The current estimated wait list time is 24 to 36 months.
