The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program is the federal government’s largest low-income housing assistance program, serving approximately 2.1 million households nationwide. The HCV program is administered federally by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and locally by approximately 2,300 local, regional, and state agencies, referred to collectively as public housing agencies (PHAs). Funding for the HCV program is provided by the federal government. The funding that PHAs receive for running the HCV program includes the housing subsidy itself, plus administrative fees to cover the costs of running the program.
