The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, also known as Section 8, is a Federal program managed by New York State Homes and Community Renewal, that provides rental assistance for very low-income families. This program allows the family to choose and lease affordable, privately owned rental housing. Eligible families are issued a “voucher” that demonstrates that the family is eligible for rental assistance. A family’s rent is limited to 30-40% of their adjusted monthly income and a subsidy covers the remaining portion of the rent.
RUPCO is the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV)/Section 8 Program’s local administrator in Ulster and Greene Counties, managing over 2,000 vouchers in our offices in Catskill and Kingston.
