The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program provides tenant-based subsidies for rents paid by low-income households based upon their income. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the department on behalf of the participating family. The family pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program. Under certain circumstances, if authorized by DOLA, a family may use its voucher to purchase a home.
The division also provides resources and services to HCV contractors accessed through the menu items on the left.
This program, once Section 8, helps low-income Coloradans rent affordable housing. The Division of Housing contracts with public housing authorities and non-profit organizations to run the HCV Program. Vouchers are given by those agencies, not the Division of Housing. Tenants receive funding based on their income and can choose any type of housing including apartments, townhomes and single-family homes.
