KCHA just received an award of 59 new Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8) from the U.S. Dept. of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The vouchers are among the nearly 100,000 new HCVs nationwide provided by the American Rescue Plan and Fiscal Year 2022 budget.
Said KCHA Executive Director Robin Walls: “With so many people in King County in need of affordable housing, these Fair Share vouchers from HUD help us continue to grow an essential resource for the most economically vulnerable members of our communities. Housing choice vouchers are key to providing opportunities for stable, affordable housing in this intensely competitive rental market. We are highly pleased at HUD’s new focus on redistribution if of underutilized vouchers to communities that can lease those units.”
