The Harris County Housing Authority is seeking 150 vouchers under the Housing Choice Voucher Mobility Demonstration program sponsored by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

“Our mission is to assist families in obtaining the quality housing in quality areas of the Harris County where families will have a greater chance of success in becoming self-sufficient,” said Horace Allison, HCHA Executive Director, and CEO. “This demonstration program will provide funding and services to increase the number of families with children being able to reside in high-opportunity areas.”
The mobility-related services will include but are not limited to the following: pre-move services, housing search assistance, landlord recruitment, Family financial Assistance, and post-move services.
The application will be submitted by February 2020.
