The Housing Choice Voucher program, commonly known as HCV or Section 8, is the federal government’s largest tenant-based rental assistance program. The HCV program assists low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. Housing choice vouchers are administered locally by public housing agencies (PHAs) that receive federal funds from HUD. Central to the program are the landlords who provide housing to the HCV participants. These resources introduce the HCV program to prospective landlords and highlight HCV landlords from across the country.
