Program Eligibility


Eligibility for a housing voucher is determined by CCHRA based on the total annual gross income and family size and is limited to US citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status. In general, the family’s income may not exceed 50% of the median income for the county or metropolitan area in which the family chooses to live.

By law, a PHA must provide 75% of its voucher to applicants whose incomes do not exceed 30 percent of the area median income.

Application Process

Collect Information

We will collect information on family income, assets, and family composition.

Verify Information

We will verify this information with other local agencies, your employer, and your bank. We will use the information to determine your eligibility and the amount of housing assistance you will receive.

Put On Waiting List

If CCHRA determines that your family is eligible, we will put your name on a waiting list.

Issue A Housing Voucher

Once your name is reached on the waiting list, we will contact you and issue you a housing voucher.

Applications are reviewed in the same order they come into us in.
