Housing Choice Voucher Programs

Notice to tenants on HUD waivers

On April 10, 2020, HUD published Notice PIH 2020‐05 in response to the COVID‐19 pandemic. The CARES Act provides HUD with broad authority to waive statutes and regulations related to its programs, except fair housing, nondiscrimination, labor standards, and environmental requirements. The Housing Authority of Clackamas County (HACC) has adopted many of the waivers offered by HUD for the Section 8 and Public Housing programs. HACC is required to provide this notice and you can find the list of all the waivers adopted with a brief explanation of impact online.

.

The Housing Choice Voucher program (formerly known as Section 8) provides assistance to families that rent units in the private rental housing market. It is authorized by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended. The Housing Choice Voucher Program can assist approximately 1,500 families in Clackamas County.

Report Household and Income Changes

Residents should use the Change Report form below to report any household changes to HACC. Please print and complete the form and return it to HACC within 7 days of any change in income, household composition, or contact information. Failure to report changes could lead to a loss of housing assistance.

Participant Eligibility

To qualify for the voucher program, the household income must not exceed HUD set standards, which is 50% of the area median income, for the specified number of family members. There is no asset limitation; however, income derived from assets is included in the annual income.

Reasonable accommodation requests

HACC will provide "reasonable accommodations" to applicants and participants of HACC's Housing Choice Voucher Program. A reasonable accommodation is some modification or change HACC can make to its policies or procedures that will assist an otherwise eligible person with a disability to attain equal participation in HACC's programs.

To make a Reasonable Accommodation request, complete and submit the Request for a Reasonable Accommodation form.
