Rental Assistance, Housing Choice Vouchers
Virginia Housing Development Authority
Who We Are
Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA) participates in the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
Rental assistance programs are available to provide low-income families and individuals with decent, safe, sanitary housing at monthly rents they can afford. People who qualify under one of the programs generally pay no more than 30% of their income in rent, depending on the subsidy program. Please call for more information about qualification.
Find an Agency that Offers the Housing Choice Voucher Program
VHDA administers vouchers in certain areas of the state that do not have a local housing authority or housing agency. The VHDA Voucher Program is primarily in the suburbs and rural areas of Virginia and generally not in the metropolitan areas of the state. VHDA subcontracts with 41 local agencies (administrative agents or agencies), which run the day-to-day operations under the Authority's direction. The VHDA voucher program is not statewide.
