Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV)
The Housing Authority of the Township of Brick (HATB) administers a Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide rental subsidy to very low-income families, the elderly and the disabled persons who wish to live in privately owned housing and receive rental assistance.
An eligible applicant is issued a voucher in an amount determined by income and family composition. Privately owned housing must meet Housing Quality Standards (HQS) to ensure the health and safety of program participants.
The Housing Authority of the Township of Brick (HATB) currently administers about 120 vouchers
HCV’s are portable, meaning a participant may move anywhere within the United States or its territories and continue to receive assistance, provided that there is Housing Authority in the respective area accepting vouchers
In order to participate in the HCV Program, the landlord and the participant must comply with certain HUD regulations.
More information on the HCV Program is available at HUD’s website
