The Liberty County Housing Authority ‘s mission is to responsibly administer programs providing affordable housing to county residents through innovative ways, as set forth by housing policy, designed to help our local neighbors get back on their feet.
The Housing Choice Voucher program is the federal government's major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market.
Eligible applicants receive a voucher which is used to rent a residence.
The role of the landlord in the voucher program is to provide decent, safe, and sanitary housing to a tenant at a reasonable rent. The dwelling unit must pass the program's Housing Quality Standards and be maintained up to those standards as long as the owner receives housing assistance payments. In addition, the landlord is expected to provide the services agreed to as part of the lease signed with the tenant and the contract signed with the PHA. Any property owners interested in participating in the County Housing Program, contact the Housing Office for more information.
