Garland Housing Agency

To Housing Choice Voucher Landlords

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is one of nine federal agencies impacted by the current governmental shutdown. HUD provides 100% of the funding to agencies that administer the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, such as The Garland Housing Agency. It is through this formula allocation that the federal government provides budget authority to issue Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) to private market landlords who make units available for families participating in the HCV program.

Mission

"To assist low and moderate income families in obtaining safe, decent and sanitary housing, while promoting Self-Sufficiency."

Garland Housing Agency's (GHA) main focus is highlighted in our mission statement. GHA continues to be more than merely a provider of housing vouchers. It is an agency whose dedicated caseworkers, inspectors, and employees assist families and individuals to obtain not only housing that meets Housing Quality Standards set by HUD, but also employment assistance, counseling, and training. The staff is committed to treating individuals with respect and to further the collaborative efforts between GHA and the community.
