Thank you for your consideration as a public-private partner with Dothan Housing's Wiregrass Regional Voucher Program (WRVP).
What is the Housing Choice Voucher Program?
This program assists low-income families and individuals in locating safe, decent, and affordable housing in the private market. Participants pay a portion of the rent based on their income. The rest of the rent is paid directly to the owner by DHA.
The Housing Choice Voucher Program is designed to achieve four major objectives:
- To provide improved living conditions for low and very low-income families while maintaining their rent payments at an affordable level;
- To promote freedom of housing choice and integrate lower-income and minority families into mainstream society;
- To provide decent, safe, and affordable housing for eligible participants; and
- To provide an incentive to private property owners to rent to lower-income families by offering timely assistance payments.
The landlord plays a key role in the success of the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
