WELCOME TO THE HABD HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER PROGRAM
The rental assistance program is a federal initiative to help low income families obtain private rental housing. HABD provides families with financial assistance to afford a unit owned by a private landlord. The HABD Housing Choice Voucher Program currently assists more than 4,000 families.
Our goal is to expand housing opportunities for families in areas that have not traditionally participated in the program. Efforts also include improving rental assistance in other quality, well-maintained residential and multi-unit neighborhoods.
The Housing Choice Voucher Program is not currently taking applications. Applications are taken periodically. Public service announcements along with newspaper notices will alert prospective participants of open application dates.
HABD has partnered with www.Gosection8.com, which provides an enhanced program to list rental properties on line. Listings are available to potential Housing Choice Voucher tenants seeking apartment units, duplexes, single-family homes or townhomes in the private market. If you have any questions regarding registering, creating or viewing property listings, please contact the GoSection8 toll free help line at 1-866-466-7328.
More information is available by contacting Michael C. Threatt, Interim Vice President of Assisted Housing at (205) 521-6360 or Mthreatt@habd.net.
