The Rice County Housing and Redevelopment Authority is a public housing authority that administers the federally funded Housing Choice Voucher Program through a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.
The program is designed to provide affordable, safe, decent and sanitary rental housing for low and moderate income families. As vouchers become available, eligible families are called from the waiting list which opens periodically.
Housing Choice Voucher Program
The Housing Choice Voucher Program enables families to locate housing in the private rental market where landlords are willing to participate and where the rents are comparable to similar unassisted unites and falls within the program's guidelines. When families begin renting assisted units, they must pay a minimum of 30%, not to exceed 40%, of their monthly adjusted income towards rent and utilities. This calculation of assistance is done by the housing authority.
