The Emergency Housing Voucher (EHV) program is available through the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). Through EHV, HUD is providing 70,000 housing choice vouchers to local Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) in order to assist individuals and families who are homeless, at-risk of homelessness, fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking, or were recently homeless or have a high risk of housing instability.
Chatham County Housing Authority is not responsible for approving the EHV’s during an emergency. Tenants must first qualify through the Central Piedmont Community Action Program. Referrals are then submitted to CCHA for disbursement. To see if you qualify please visit here.
