HCV participants pay between 30-40% of their monthly household income toward rent. The voucher covers the rest of the rent and sends the payment directly to the landlord.
To be eligible to apply, you must be an adult or an emancipated minor, and you must not be currently receiving assistance through the HCV voucher program. In the eligibility interview, the determination will be made.
The Terrell Housing Department will review the following eligibility categories to determine if you qualify:
-Does the makeup of the family meet the definition of family used by Terrell Housing Department?
-Is the total gross income below the income limits for the program at the time?
-Does the family meet the criteria regarding citizenship or eligible immigration status?
-Has the family disclosed all social security numbers and signed all required consent forms?
-Have all adult household members passed the criminal background check?
-Are any adult household members on the registered sex offenders list?
-Does the family owe any debt to Terrell Housing Department or any other federally assisted housing program?
-Has the family been evicted from federally assisted housing within the past 5 years?
