How does the Housing Choice Voucher Program work?

If you qualify, the Housing Choice Voucher Programs allows you to choose any rental unit (single-family homes, townhouses and apartments) in the private market that meets the program requirements. The voucher covers a portion of your rent and you are expected to pay the balance. The amount you pay is generally between 30 to 40 percent of your monthly income for rent and utilities.
