Housing Choice Voucher

The Housing Choice Voucher Program was established by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974. This program, funded by HUD, provides rental subsidies to up to 170 families who live in privately-owned homes or apartments throughout Douglas County.

Families pay approximately 30% of their income for housing and utilities while the SHA pays the difference. The Housing Choice Voucher Program is a partnership between private landlords, families and the Housing Authority. We recognize it takes all three working together to make this program a success and we appreciate the landlord contributions to this effort.
