Tenants

The Housing Choice Voucher Program is administered by the Housing Authority to make housing assistance payments to private landlords for eligible families, senior citizens, disabled and handicapped persons. This program enables eligible persons to rent privately owned existing, decent, safe, and sanitary housing within the DETCOG Region, including Angelina, Hardin, Houston, Jasper, Newton, Polk, Sabine, San Augustine, San Jacinto, Shelby, Trinity and Tyler Counties. There are rent subsidies available for zero, one, two, three and four bedroom homes, apartments, mobile homes, duplexes or any kind of dwelling that meets the standards set by the program.

Local preferences include families who live or work within the DETCOG jurisdiction, veterans, and victims of domestic violence.

RE-EXAMINATIONS

 

The re-examination process is a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requirement that allows DETCOG to review participant income and household composition and to adjust the household’s level of assistance accordingly.
