For Participants

The Housing Voucher Program provides rental assistance to income-eligible tenants by subsidizing a portion of their monthly rent and utilities and paying it directly to their landlords. Once you have been accepted into the program, you must remain in good standing. That requires being a considerate neighbor, paying your rent on time, reporting any changes in the members of your household or your income to your residential coordinator within 10 days and ensuring that your unit passes an annual inspection.

Payment Standards

For Landlords

DOLA provides landlords participating in the Housing Voucher program resources and information to provide low-income families access decent, safe and affordable housing in the neighborhood of their choice. Rental assistance payments are sent directly to the landlord on behalf of a participating family. The family then pays their tenant portion of the rent directly to the landlord.
