Section 8-Housing Choice Voucher ( HCV) Program
HACY began its operation with funds to assist 200 families under the HCV Section 8 Program. Today, HACY assists 1,444 families. And, HACY administers contracts with approximately 400 local landlords and property owners, working together to provide affordable housing opportunities to persons in need. HACY subsidizes the household rent through a Housing Assistance Payment (HAP) Contract with the landlord/owner. The program is administered under an Annual Contributions Contract (ACC) with the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). HUD provides ACC funding to enable HACY to structure a lease agreement that sets the program participant's rent at 30% of household income after deductions. The voucher program includes a baseline of traditional HCV's and other special population vouchers for (1) veterans (HUD VASH), (2) youth aging out of foster care (FUP), and (3) persons with serious mental illness (SMI). HACY's program operations budget is approximately $1,000,000 dollars. HUD's rental subsidy portion exceeds approximately $7,000,000 annually.
