The Monroe Housing Authority rental assistance program that was created under Section 8 of the 1974 Federal Housing and Community Development Act provides subsidies to local landlords on behalf of low-income families and individuals living in privately owned housing in the City of Monroe. This program assists eligible families in finding safe, decent, and affordable housing.  MHA makes housing subsidy payments directly to the landlords. MHA is responsible for collecting income verifications and calculating the tenant’s portion of the rent.  The family may pay 30% to 40% of their household income for rent.  This program is based on Federal Income Guidelines. The Monroe Housing Authority’s Housing Choice Voucher Program is committed in providing to the constituents of Monroe, LA services that will improve their lives and futures.

 

One of the key features of the housing choice voucher program is the mobility of the assistance.  Voucher participants may choose a unit that meets program requirements anywhere in the United States, provided that a PHA administering the tenant-based program has jurisdiction over the area in which the unit is located.  This process is called portability. The PHA will deny a family permission to make an elective move during the family’s initial lease term.  The PHA will also deny the family to make more than one move during any 12-month period.

 

HUD requires that all units occupied by families receiving Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) assistance meet HUD’s Housing Quality Standards (HQS) and permits the PHA to establish additional requirements.  HQS is the term used to refer to HUD and PHA established inspection requirements.  Passed HQS inspections are REQUIRED before Housing Assistance Payments can be made.

 

Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) is one of the initiatives enacted by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) as part of the National Affordable Housing Act of 1990.  The program assists Section 8 families to achieve economic independence.  The program allows participants to take advantage of schooling, training, and to gain work experience, while receiving Section 8 rental assistance.

In addition to this assistance, the Monroe Housing Authority (MHA) will set aside money in an escrow account for employed FSS participants who begin to pay a larger portion of their rent due to their increased earned income.  Successful graduates of the FSS program will receive the funds in their escrow accounts to use as they choose.  Successful FSS graduates have used their escrow funds to purchase a home, a new car, or to continue their education.

There are two ways to graduate successfully from the FSS program.  To receive the funds in the escrow account, the family must do one of the following by the five-year FSS contract:

  • Graduation Method #1:
    The family completes all goals set in the individual Training and Service Plan (ITSP); Family members do not receive any cash aid (such as TANF or General Assistance) during the last twelve months of the FSS Contract; and the Head of Household is suitably employed. 
  • Graduation Method #2:
    The family’s income increases to the point that the family is no longer eligible for Section 8 rental assistance; Family members do not receive any cash aid (such as TANF or General Assistance) at the time of graduation; and the Head of Household is suitably employed. Participating families must follow all Section 8 regulations and comply with their lease terms.

Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program

The Housing Authority of Monroe County administers a Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to provide rental subsidy to very low-income families, the elderly and the disabled persons who wish to live in privately owned housing and receive rental assistance.

An eligible applicant is issued a voucher in an amount determined by income and family composition. Privately owned housing must meet Housing Quality Standards (HQS) to ensure the health and safety of program participants.

The Housing Authority of Monroe County currently administers 717 vouchers, 25 Mainstream Vouchers, 8 Family Unification Vouchers, 15 Shelter Plus Care.

HCV’s are portable meaning a participant may move anywhere within the United States or its territories and continue to receive assistance, provided that there is Housing Authority in the respective area accepting vouchers.

In order to participate in the HCV Program, the landlord and the participant must comply with certain HUD regulations.

More information on the HCV Program is available at HUD’s website http://www.hud.gov.
