Housing Choice Voucher (HCV)/Section 8
In this HUD-funded rental assistance program, participants lease housing from private landlords in the City of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County, and HRHA subsidizes the rent. Units must be the appropriate size and meet HUD standards for safety and quality.

To be eligible, families must be at or below 50% of Area Median Income.  Note: preferences impact the waitlist order more than the date and time of application.

HRHA pays the difference between 30% of the tenantís adjusted monthly income and the fair market rent to a private landlord on behalf of the tenant.  Click here for more information on how income is calculated to determine the rent.

How To Apply

The application is online, but the HCV waitlist is currently closed.  Click here for a list of other local resources or contact the Community Resource Center.
