Housing Choice Voucher Program

The Garland Housing Agency administers the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program which is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This program enables families to obtain decent, safe and sanitary housing by subsidizing a portion of the tenant's monthly rent and paying it directly to the property owner.


Any type of private rental housing is eligible to participate in the HCV program, including single family dwellings, apartments and town homes.

Paperwork is minimal and the landlord retains normal management rights and responsibilities including: 

  • tenant selection
  • rent collection
  • property maintenance
  • lease terminations/evictions
