Thank you for choosing to participate in the BCHA’s Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. Our landlord and property owner participants are key to the success of this program.
The HCV program serves more than 500 families throughout Berks County. The program supports the standard lease arrangement between a property owner and a tenant, providing a monthly subsidy payment to the property owner, on behalf of the renter, to fill the gap between what the renter can afford to pay and the actual market rent amount. The BCHA has a strong set of guidelines that each property owner must adhere to as a participant in this program. The property owner is responsible for screening and approving potential residents, continuously maintaining quality housing, and enforcing the tenant’s lease. The BCHA’s staff will always be available to assist you with any questions.
