KENDALL HOUSING AUTHORITY TO OPEN HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER (HCV) PROGRAM WAIT LIST
The Kendall Housing Authority (KHA) Housing Choice Voucher Program, known previously as Section 8, provides one hundred sixty (160) eligible households (“Participants”) with opportunities to live in rental housing owned by private property owners. Participants choose where they want to live, as long as the unit is 1) approved through an inspection; 2) the rent is reasonable compared to same or similar non- subsidized units in the same area; and 3) affordable for the family.
KHA pays a portion of the contracted rent in the form of a housing assistance payment (HAP) to the landlord on behalf of the Participant. The HAP is the monthly assistance payment by the PHA for a contract unit, which includes: (1) a payment to the owner for rent to the owner under the family’s lease minus the tenant rent; and (2) an additional payment to or on behalf of the family if the utility allowance exceeds total tenant payment.
KHA opens its HCV Waiting List as often as needed (only when funding is available) to provide assistance to additional low to moderate income families. KHA opened its Housing Choice Voucher Program Wait List, online on MARCH 1, 2018 and it is now CLOSED.
