HCV - Eligibility

Am I eligible?

Eligibility for a housing voucher is determined by NCFRHA based on the total annual gross income, criminal background, family size and is limited to US citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status.

During the application process, NCFRHA will collect information on family income, assets, and family composition. NCFRHA will verify this information with other local agencies, your employer and will use the information to determine program eligibility.

If NCFRHA determines that your family is eligible, your name is added to the waiting list by date, time, and local preference if applicable. 

Once your name comes to the top of the waiting list NCFRHA will contact you by mail. It is very important and the applicant's responsibility to notify the agency in writing if they change their mailing address.
