HCV Participant Information

Transfer a Section 8 Voucher:

The Section 8 Program allows a household to transfer its voucher to another city after you have completed one year in our jurisdiction. The first step in this process is to contact your RHC Section 8 Coordinator.

Tenant Responsibilities:

  • Participants in the RHC’s Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program are responsible for:
  • Providing the RHC with complete and accurate information about family composition, income and assets.
  • Promptly notifying the RHC of any changes in family composition, income or assets.
  • Locating rental housing within RHC jurisdiction that meets the program quality and cost standards.
  • Providing complete information about rental agreements with the rental property owner. The terms of a lease cannot be changed without the RHC’s written acknowledgement.
  • Complying with all program and lease requirements, including paying the family’s portion of the rent on time, informing the RHC in advance of any move to a new rental unit, and obtaining preapproval of the new unit.
