HCV and How it Works

The HCV program assists eligible low-income families or individuals in obtaining affordable, decent, sanitary, and safe housing in Tucson. Rent is based on the household's income. The portion of rent paid by the Housing Authority is paid directly to the landlord and the participant pays the difference of the contract rent to the landlord directly.

Rent Amounts

Participant portion of the rent is generally around 30% of monthly gross income. When an applicant is selected off the waitlist, they will be interviewed to determine exactly what their portion of the rent will be.
