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 1657 vouchers. Our vouchers consist of a mix of HCV,PBV, VASH, MSV and FUP. DRHA also administers Virginia State Rental Assistance program vouchers for the City of Danville and Pittsylvania County region.  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.
