Currently administering two federally funded programs:
Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program providing income based rental assistance to over 230 families monthly.
Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Entitlement to Hamilton County. Priorities include expansion of the supply of safe, decent, affordable housing, strengthening of the community’s living environment, and the promotion of community services that increase opportunities for economic self-sufficiency which benefits low- and moderate-income persons.
Number of families being assisted:

The Housing Choice Voucher Program assists over 230 families per month with rental assistance. Included in this total are 75 units of HCV Non Elderly Disabled (NED) program for families whose head-of-house or spouse is disabled and under 62 years of age; and 114 HCV units for other qualified families. The HCV program is portable anywhere in the United States and currently we are billing other Housing Authorities for more  than 30 families who have moved into the Hamilton County jurisdiction. NHA currently has more than 200 families on the waitlist for the HCV program.

The Community Development Block Grant Entitlement provides direct funding to not-for-profit entities providing public service activities to over 40,000 households in the past four years; funding for low-income housing opportunities; direct funding to Towns/Cities for infrastructure improvements throughout Hamilton County which must benefit at or below the low- and moderate-income persons/families.
