The Housing Choice Voucher Program is a Federal Housing Program funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). It helps low income families, the elderly, and the disabled, afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. Housing Choice Vouchers are administered locally by the Danville Redevelopment and Housing Authority.
Danville Redevelopment and Housing Authority currently administers 722 vouchers. A family that is issued a housing voucher is responsible for finding a suitable housing unit of the family’s choice where the owner agrees to rent under the program. The unit : (1) must meet housing quality standards (inspection will be conducted); (2) rent must reasonable; (3) meet other program requirements.
Landlords can also list available units for rent with our office. If you are a landlord, and wish to list your unit with our office, please call (434)792-5544.
PLEASE NOTE: The application process for the housing choice voucher program is now closed. We are not accepting any further applications at this time.
