What is the Housing Voucher Program?
The Housing Voucher (HV) Program, formerly known as Section 8, is a federally funded program for assisting very low-income families, elderly, and disabled households to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. Eligible Participants will have a housing subsidy paid to the landlord directly by OCHA on behalf of the participating family on a unit of their choice within the Oklahoma City limits. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program which is generally 30% of their adjusted income. Households that participate in the HV program are selected from OCHA’s waitlist.The HV program is a free-choice approach to assisted housing. You are free to choose any type dwelling unit, in Oklahoma City limits, as long as it meets certain requirements for rent limits, rent reasonableness and Housing Quality Standards (HQS). The landlord retains private property rights, including management, tenant selection and maintenance. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) determines the rules and regulations for the HV Program.
The Family Self-Sufficiency Program is a special program offered to our HV program participants that want to have and enjoy a better quality of life for themselves and their families. There are also programs designed to assist participants and their families with special needs or disabilities: Family Unification Program, Mainstream Program for Persons with Disabilities, Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing, Village at Oakwood, John H. Johnson, Pershing Center, and the Single Room Occupancy Program.
Am I Eligible?
Eligibility is determined by family size, and gross (amount before any taxes or deductions) annual income for the family. You may be eligible as an individual or a family if your gross annual income does not exceed income guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). There are no minimum income requirements.
