Emergency Housing Voucher

The Emergency Housing Voucher (EHV) program is an outcome of President Biden’s American Rescue Plan Act of 2021.
A federal subsidy program through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), EHV’s goal is to decrease homelessness and assist in obtaining decent, safe, and sanitary housing by subsidizing a portion of each family’s monthly rent, based on their income.
