Participant Obligations

Continued program participation requires the family uphold its Participant Obligations.​
Program obligations of the family are described in the housing choice voucher (HCV) and project based voucher (PBV) regulations and on the voucher itself. These obligations include responsibilities the family is required to fulfill, as well as prohibited actions. OHA must inform families of these obligations during the oral briefing, and the same information must be included in the briefing packet. When the family’s unit is approved and the HAP contract is executed, the family must meet those obligations in order to continue participating in the program. All adult members must read and sign the Participant Obligations form annually.


Violation of any family obligation may result in termination of assistance.
