Housing Choice Voucher Program

Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8)

The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program provides rental assistance to low-income families to rent decent, safe and affordable housing in the private market. The Housing Choice Voucher is federally funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Families can use their vouchers to rent a house, duplex or apartment in the private market within the city of El Paso, TX. Once an eligible family receives their voucher and finds an affordable unit, HACEP pays a portion of the family’s rent each month directly to the landlord.  

Project-Based Vouchers

Similar to the Housing Choice Voucher Program, the Project-Based Voucher (PBV) program provides rental assistance to eligible, low-income families. The tenant is assigned a privately-owned unit under the Project Based Voucher Program. 

Tenants pay 30% of their income for rent and utilities.  HACEP enters into a long-term Housing Assistance Payments contract with the property owner to pay the remaining rent balance on behalf of the family.
