Why is my rent so high?

Please contact your Housing Choice Voucher caseworker at 540-434-7386 to make sure they have the most up-to-date household information and ask him/her any questions you may have about your portion of the rent.

When is the rent due?

The rent is due on the first of each month, but we give five days from the first as a grace period. After the fifth day a late fee will be charged.
