HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER (HCV)
The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, also known as Section 8, is a public/private partnership that provides vouchers (housing subsidies) to low-income families for use in the private rental housing market. It is funded and regulated by HUD. The Livermore Housing Authority administers 723 vouchers which may be used to rent a unit from any landlord in Livermore eligible to participate in the program.
Households in this program earn 30 percent of area median income or less to qualify, and pay the portion of rent and utilities not covered by the voucher—typically 30 to 40 percent of monthly income. Please note that the eligibility requirements for the Housing Choice Voucher program differ from those of other programs.
Payment Standard Effective September 1, 2014
