The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program is a federally funded program designed to provide subsidies to very low and extremely low income families, allowing them to locate decent, safe housing while maintaining their rental payments at an affordable level. The program also offers an incentive to private property owners to rent to low income families by offering timely, consistent subsidy payments, yearly inspections, and mediation.

The Housing Authority administers Section 8 (HCV) for the cities of De Soto, Edgerton, Gardner, Lenexa, Merriam, Mission, Overland Park, Prairie Village, Roeland Park, Shawnee, Springhill and Westwood areas, Leawood, Fairway, and Stillwell.

With COVID-19  reaching pandemic status and active cases surfacing in Johnson County, our top priority is maintaining the safety and well-being of our clients, landlord partners and employees.

We are actively following direction and recommendations from HUD, CDC, State and County officials to help prevent the spread of germs and infection.

Because there is currently no vaccine, the best way to protect yourself from COVID-19 is to avoid being exposed and practice preventive measures which can be found at the CDC website.

For HCV Participants in re-certification, please send Tenant Data Sheet and all required documents via e-mail, fax, US Mail or place in drop-boxes located on the front of our building.

For HCV Participants reporting income or other changes, please complete Change Form and provide required documents via e-mail, fax, US Mail or place in drop-boxes located on the front of our building.

We are in the process of setting up a large secure drop-box outside of the building to leave pertinent documents. A temporary document station will be set up in the southeast corner (receiving dock) of our building.

Johnson County Housing Authority will no longer make copies.  It will be the HCV Participant’s responsibility to provide copies of all required documents.

Annual HQS Inspections are being postponed until further notice.  Move-in inspections of unoccupied units will continue.

As always, please contact your Occupancy Specialist, by phone or e-mail, with any questions.  Thank you for your cooperation and continued support as we work together to maintain the health of our community.
