Wait-list open for housing choice vouchers

A very small window has opened for people who would like to receive a housing voucher issued by the Charlottesville Redevelopment and Housing Authority. 

“Applications are accepted online at portal.cvillerha.com and people can contact CRHA with questions at 434-422-9218,” said City Councilor Michael Payne, a voting member of the CRHA’s Board of Commissioners.

The window opened Monday morning at 9 a.m. and closed at 4 p.m. on Thursday. Applications have to be completed online. 

“The HCV program is a rental assistance program that assists extremely low-income and very low-income families with their rent in the private market,” reads a press release sent out on March 23. “Applicants for the waitlist noted may qualify at 50 percent of the Area Median Income.” 

Preference is given to Albemarle County and Charlottesville residents. For more information, visit the CRHA’s website on the voucher program.
