Am I Eligible?

Individuals earning or living with low-incomes can afford to rent an apartment or single-family home at normal market rates through the Housing Choice Voucher Program. 

The Housing Choice Voucher program provides rental assistance to about 3,900 households in Greenville County, SC. This highly popular program has a waiting list that we are only able to open every few years. Applicants are then selected from the waiting list using a random lottery system. 

To meet the income guidelines, you must earn less than half (50%) of the typical income for a family of your size in the Greenville area. Use the chart below to find out.
