In recent months
Housing Choice Vouchers for rental assistance have
been issued to several families searching for
housing in the community of Norfolk. Families are
searching for new residences or leasing in their
current residence using rental assistance as rental
units are limited at this time.
There has been
discussion of possible expansion of the jurisdiction
for the Housing Choice Voucher program. There is a
housing shortage in Norfolk and families with
vouchers are not finding homes or apartments to
rent. Currently we can assist clients in a 5-mile
jurisdiction around the City of Norfolk.
Potentially, expanding to a 10-mile jurisdiction
could provide more available housing.
