Suffolk Redevelopment and Housing Authority offers a number of programs to benefit families, individuals and communities:
Housing Choice Voucher (HCV), formally Section 8
The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program is a federally funded and income based program designed to provide decent and safe housing in the private market to qualified low to moderate income families, elderly and persons with disabilities. Since the assistance is provided on behalf of the family, participants are able to find their own housing.
The Public Housing Program is a federally funded income based program that provides rental assistance to qualified low to moderate income families, elderly and persons with disabilities. Public Housing was established to provide decent, safe and affordable housing, to which SRHA owns, manages and maintains five public housing communities.
The Development Department is the catalyst for the development of affordable housing by working with neighborhood residents, public housing residents, community at large and community partners to revitalize neighborhoods into mixed income, mixed use communities for our low to moderate income families, elderly and persons with disabilities.
