Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Rental Assistance Program

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides financial housing assistance to eligible low-income families based upon income. The amount the family pays for rent and utilities will generally not exceed 30% of income. Family income must be within HUD guidelines for household size in order to qualify. Owners of rental properties must comply with HUD program requirements. The rent for a property must be reasonable and must pass the HUD Housing Quality Standards. The Livonia Housing Commission currently assists approximately 900 families.

More information may be obtained through the HUD website and search for Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.
