People who currently have a HUD Tenant Based Section 8 Voucher (a.k.a. Housing Choice Voucher) may be able to use their voucher toward the purchase of their first home through Public Housing Authorities (PHA) that participate in the Homeownership Voucher program. Homeownership vouchers are intended to assist first-time homeowners with their monthly homeownership expenses, including mortgage payments.
