Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher
The Eastern Iowa Regional Housing Authority has an annual contributions contract to assist up to 883 households within its budget authority, with rental assistance in the six county region. The participating family chooses a decent, safe, and sanitary rental unit in which to reside. If the landlord agrees to lease the unit to the household under the Section 8 HCV Program, and EIRHA approves the rental unit, the Housing Authority will make monthly rental payments to the landlord to help the household pay their rent each month. Participating households pay a minimum of 30% of their adjusted income for rent and utilities or $50, whichever is greater.
After we receive your application, you will be put on a waiting list. When you reach the top of the waiting list, a briefing packet will be sent to you. After the screening process is completed, the housing voucher will be issued. When you locate a rental unit, an inspection is conducted.
