Section 8


Family moving home

One of the convenient features of the Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP) is the mobility of rental assistance known as “Section 8 Portability.”  The term “portability” refers to the transfer process that allows the Housing Choice Voucher holders to relocate and lease a unit that meets program requirements anywhere in the United States.  This feature enables program participants to fully exercise their housing choice and select suitable units regardless of the initial public housing authority’s jurisdiction. When voucher holders request to exercise the portability option, the LHA, in collaboration with other housing authorities, will make every effort to facilitate this mobility process and assist the participant in making a successful transfer.
