Voucher Policy/Extension (See how to use my voucher)
Voucher Term [24 CFR 982.303]
The initial voucher term will be 60 calendar days.
The family must submit a Request for Tenancy Approval and proposed lease within the 60-day period unless the PHA grants an extension.
Extensions of Voucher Term [24 CFR 982.303(b)]
The PHA will automatically approve one 30-day extension upon written request from the family.
A maximum of two 30-day extensions to the initial 60 day voucher will be generated providing the family meets one of the conditions above.
Suspensions of Voucher Term [24 CFR 982.303(c)]
When a Request for Tenancy Approval and proposed lease is received by the PHA, the term of the voucher will be suspended while the PHA processes the request.
Expiration of Voucher Term
If an applicant family’s voucher term or extension expires before the family has submitted a Request for Tenancy Approval (RTA), the PHA will require the family to reapply for assistance. If an RTA that was submitted prior to the expiration date of the voucher is subsequently disapproved by the PHA (after the voucher term has expired), the family will be given back the time lost while the RTA was in review. The family may be eligible for an extension based on the policy above.
