When we receive your paperwork, we will contact you to schedule a briefing session and issue you a local voucher. If you do not hear from us within two weeks of your voucher being sent, please contact us.
If any of the following items are missing from your packet, you may be asked to submit them before we can issue you a local voucher:
Income information for all family members
Photo identification for adults
Birth certificates and social security cards for all household members
Citizenship declaration, with INS verification if applicable, for all family members
Information on the family’s participation in FSS; and
Information on reasonable accommodation and/or Earned Income Disallowance (EID)
Copy of the 30-day notice to move for prior voucher/housing, if applicable
After we issue you a local voucher, you can search in the HRHA jurisdiction and submit a tenancy request.
HRHA will re-verify your income when it is time to determine your rent amount. If you have never used the voucher before, you must be income eligible in the HRHA jurisdiction.
Porting Out of Harrisonburg
If you have a voucher with HRHA and wish to move to another jurisdiction, complete and submit the Request to Port with your Request to Move form. More details about porting out can be found here.
You must satisfy the criteria for move approval first:
Rent is current
No outstanding charges
Lease in good standing with proper notice
No repayment owed to HRHA
Before your request can be processed, you must identify the housing authority serving the area where you wish to move. A searchable database on the HUD website is available. It may take up to two weeks for your request to be processed. For additional information and assistance, contact the HCV Manager, Liz Webb, at (540) 434-7386.
