Providing Housing Resources With an Eagerness to Serve
Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher
The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program is the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and people with disabilities to afford decent and safe housing in the private market. Participants may choose any housing that meets the requirements of the program, including single-family homes, townhouses, and apartments. Rental units must meet minimum standards of health and safety, as determined by OHFA. A housing subsidy is paid by OHFA to the landlord on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by OHFA.

OHFA has entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the Department of Human Services and the National Resource Center for Youth Services. This agreement provides assistance with rent to young adults aging out of foster care, or with histories of involvement with foster care, and who are at a high risk of homelessness.
With this program, individuals apply for assistance directly with the property. The Performance Based Contract Administration program provides monitoring and payment services of assisted units to owners of project-based Section 8 properties for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in Oklahoma. Those who would like to live in participating apartments must qualify and apply directly with management at those locations. Please contact each property directly for housing opportunities.
