Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program

About the Program

The Housing Choice Voucher is a rental housing assistance program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The program assists very low-income persons, families, the elderly and persons with disabilities to reside in safe, decent, rental housing they can afford. Housing assistance is contingent on eligibility for the program and availability of funding.

Terrell Housing Department has the capacity to issue 458 Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers. Families in the HCV program have the choice and responsibility to select their own housing location within the corporate city limits of Terrell, Texas and with a landlord willing to accept the voucher. 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.
