Housing Choice Voucher Program

Formerly known as Section 8, this federal program provides rental subsidies to income-eligible households. Applicants receive a voucher that entitles them to rent an apartment in the private marketplace, while limiting their rental payment to 30-40% of their adjusted income. HOC pays the landlord the remaining portion of the rent through HUD appropriated funds called Housing Assistance Payments. The maximum amount that HOC can pay is determined by HUD.

HOC's waiting list for the Housing Choice Voucher Program is currently open. People may apply online by clicking on the link below. Kiosks are available at HOC offices and public libraries in Montgomery County. For further assistance, contact the HOC Housing Path at 240.627.9800.
