Need a little help paying your rent? Let Seneca Housing, Inc. help you with the HUD Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program!

About the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program:

The Seneca Housing, Inc. Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program provides rental assistance and home ownership option to extremely low, very low and low income households in Seneca County, N.Y.

The program also provides assistance to senior citizens and disabled persons on fixed incomes, displaced families, and homeless individuals with disabilities.

One goal of the HCV Program is to enable eligible households to rent or purchase decent, safe and sanitary housing in the private housing market. After a voucher is issued it remains with the family or individual as long as they remain eligible, even if they change residence. The dollar amount of HCV Program Housing Assistance Payments will vary depending on the income of the family or individual and the approved rent/mortgage for the unit.

Another facet of the HCV Program is the home ownership option available to current participating families. The voucher assistance is available and being used by current participants, who meet the home ownership eligibility requirements, toward mortgage payments to purchase a home. The HCR local administrators have programs to empower interested families with readiness for and assistance with home ownership.
