Housing Choice Voucher Program (formerly Section 8 Rental Assistance) provides rental subsidies to income-eligible households. Participants generally pay between 30-40% of their monthly adjusted income towards their housing cost and the program pays the remainder directly to the landlord. Housing Services staff perform health and safety inspections on each housing unit before rental assistance can begin and at least once per year thereafter. TCAction is a local administrator of HCVP through NYS Homes and Community Renewal.
