Housing Choice Voucher

Elisa Galvan, Director of Housing Choice Voucher Program

The Housing Choice Voucher program, also known as Section 8, is HUD’s major program for assisting low and very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. The Housing Choice Voucher program enables families to locate housing of their choice, where property owners are willing to participate and where the rents are reasonable.

PCHA’s HCV program is a HUD-designated "High Performing” program.  With a budget of over $25M annually, PCHA’s HCV department is staffed with 15 trained housing professionals, including an HCV compliance team to assure continued compliance with HUD regulations governing the HCV program.  The program assists approximately 2900 families and individuals with payment of a portion of their rent each month.  The department also administers the HUD-Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (HUD-VASH) program.
