Frequently Asked Landlord Questions
The Housing Choice Voucher Program is a federally funded, locally administered rental assistance program that helps low-income families, the elderly and the disabled afford decent, safe housing in the private market. The participant is free to choose any housing type that meets the requirements of the program. A-NRHA receives funds from HUD to administer the Housing Choice Voucher Program in Accomack and Northampton Counties.
The guaranteed, on time, monthly subsidy payment from the A-NRHA is your biggest benefit. In addition, if the family leaves the unit in violation of the lease, you may keep the subsidy payment for the month in which the family leaves. You are also protected from financial loss if your tenant suffers unexpected financial hardship. If this occurs, the subsidy payment is increased to compensate for your tenant’s lower income. The program can also help prevent your vacant houses from remaining empty for too long, since we assist a number of prospective tenants who are qualified for housing subsidy assistance look for housing.
After having qualified for the program, the family receives a housing voucher. The family then is responsible for finding a suitable housing unit where the owner agrees to rent under the program. (This unit may include the family’s present residence.) The A-NRHA then pays a housing subsidy directly to the landlord on behalf of the participating family. The family is responsible for paying the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.
The program assists mostly very low-income families in Accomack and Northampton Counties. The program takes families from its waiting list, determines the amount of assistance they will receive, and gives them a Voucher. The voucher term is for a 60 days. Extension will be considered on a case by case basis under certain conditions.
