Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program

Currently, the Greenburgh Housing Authority's Section 8 HCV Program has 303 vouchers, of which we have 42% of the units occupied by elderly/disabled. Our payment standard is set at 110% over the Fair Market Rent (FMR) so the families in Greenburgh could have a broader range of apartments.
