Once a Choice Voucher Application is received and the family is income qualified to receive assistance, they are entered on the Choice Voucher waiting list.
This list is kept in date and time order of receiving your completed application.
- It is important that you keep the Housing Authority updated with your correct mailing address during
your waiting time since you will only be notified by mail when assistance is available.
- You can also apply for more than one type of housing assistance and be on several waiting lists so
make sure to check out our other housing assistance programs.
Once you receive your Voucher, you will be able to find a housing unit owned by a private landlord in
Lincoln County. The Voucher holder pays 30% of their annual income as monthly rent to the Landlord
and the Housing Authority Voucher pays the balance. Your portion of rent will be determined by your
gross annual adjusted income and the total rental rent may not go over the payment standard for the
bedroom size the household is qualified for. (See the Payment Standard below.) The family is responsible
for any deposits required by the landlord.
Our jurisdiction covers Lincoln County; however once on the program for a period of time participants may
choose to transfer from or to other areas of the country.
The Choice Voucher Program serves applicants who are handicapped, disabled, 62 years or older,
families (consisting of two or more persons), and who are income eligible.
The Housing Authority of Lincoln County does not discriminate on the basis of
sex, race, religion, national origin, age, or sexual orientation, color, familial status, disability, marital status, or source of income.
