Indoor Plumbing Rehabilitation Program

Provides 0% interest, forgivable loans for the installation of indoor plumbing to owners of substandard housing where indoor plumbing does not exist or where the existing water delivery or waste disposal systems have failed. Loan repayments are determined by the homeowner’s ability to make payments.

Housing Choice Voucher Program

A HUD and Virginia Housing-regulated program also known as Section 8 that assists very low-income families, people with disabilities and older adults to afford decent and safe housing in the private market. With tenant-based vouchers, participants have the freedom and flexibility to find their own single family or multifamily homes meeting appropriate housing quality standards and owned by a participating landlord.
