HCV Landlord eligibility information
HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER LANDLORD INFORMATION
The Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP) (formerly Section 8) extends a continual invitation to those in the community who wish to become HCVP landlords. A HCVP landlord participates in the program by making available decent, safe and sanitary dwelling units for lease by eligible families in accordance with the Equal Opportunity Housing Plan. The Alexandria Redevelopment and Housing Authority (ARHA) makes a special effort to locate new landlords via advertising and other outreach methods as well as maintains excellent working relationships with those who participate in the program. By way of briefings, discussions and an annual Landlord Conference, the HCVP requirements are explained and discussed. Printed material is also available to acquaint the owner/manager with the opportunities available under the program. Also, HCVP Intake Specialists are available to answer any questions and/or concerns.
To ease the process of potential residents finding units, The HCVP Office maintains a Unit Availability Book of interested landlords and their property available for the HCVP, adding new landlords and their rental property information whenever new listings become available. This list is updated as landlords fax, mail or call in their information to the HCVP Office. The Unit Availability Book is available to all families with a voucher who are searching for a rental unit. The unit listing forms are provided here. (LINK to unit availability form)
