|Housing Choice Vouchers
||Participants in the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program rent housng units in the open market through a lease negotiated with a private landlord. OHA is not a party to the lease, but does pay a portion of the rent directly to the landlord on behalf of the resident.|
|Project Based Vouchers
||Tenants who reside in units using the Project-based Voucher Program have rent subsidized similarly to those using Section 8 Vouchers. However, the Voucher is tied to the unit, not the resident. Therefore, once the tenant moves they can no longer benefit from that Project-based Voucher. Residents of these units pay a portion of their rent and OHA also pays a portion to the property owner on behalf of the tenant.|
