About the Housing Choice Voucher Program
Housing Works administers a federal contract with the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide rental assistance (Section 8 vouchers) to lower-income households in Central Oregon. We currently assist over 1,200 families and individuals on a monthly basis through the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. This program brings over $7 million annually into the Central Oregon rental market, and includes more than 500 participating local landlords.
Following is a great video that may be helpful to new voucher holders:
Here is a short video on Oregon’s Source of Income Law that protects Section 8 voucher holders from being denied housing just because they have a voucher and also explains why landlords can feel more secure in renting to voucher holders.
