Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Homeownership

Qualified HCV participants may be able to use their housing assistance subsidies for mortgage payments rather than monthly rent. The homeownership option allows first-time homeowners who meet certain qualifications to receive assistance with their monthly homeownership expenses.

Family self-sufficiency (FSS)

Public housing agencies work with welfare agencies, schools, businesses, and other local partners to develop a comprehensive program that gives participating FSS family members the skills and experience to enable them to obtain employment that pays a living wage.
