Check out The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program

The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program provides decent, affordable housing to very low- to low-income individuals and families, including people with disabilities and senior citizens.

Vouchers are distributed through Virginia Housing. in partnership with local housing agency partners. Vouchers allow qualifying prospective tenants to select from a wider range of housing options, as opposed to being limited to designated housing projects. The tenant pays the landlord a percentage of their monthly income towards the rent, with the voucher subsidizing the remainder.

What families are eligible?
Prospective tenants often represent the diversity of your local community. They may be individuals, families and people with disabilities or senior citizens. They tend to be very highly-motivated renters who pay rent in a timely manner and maintain the property.
