The Housing Choice Voucher Program is part of Georgia's comprehensive housing program administered by the Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA). This is a tenant-based assistance program that assists low income individuals and families rent safe, decent, and sanitary dwelling units in the private rental market. The program was created by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 and is funded by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The goals of the Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV) are to:

  1. Provide improved living conditions for low income persons while maintaining their rent payments at an affordable level;

  2. Promote freedom of housing choice and integrate lower income and minority persons into mainstream society;

  3. Provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing for eligible participants; and read the rest from Georgia Department of Community Affairs.

The rents for project-based units are already designated per contract. The unit must be inspected before the participant can move in. If the participant wants to move, he or she may do so only after the first year of participation and only if the Housing Authority has a Section 8 voucher available to provide to the participant.

***NOTE: NOT ALL PROGRAMS AVAILABLE IN ALL LOCAL HOUSING AUTHORITIES. There is often a waiting list. Call different Public Housing Authorities for more details on wait etc.
