Housing Choice Voucher Mobility Demonstration

The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program can enable low-income families with children to move to safe neighborhoods with high-quality schools. But many families participating in the program remain in high-poverty areas, for a variety of reasons. The proposed Housing Choice Voucher Mobility Demonstration, now moving through Congress, provides incentives to public housing agencies (PHAs) to help thousands of families realize their goal of moving to high-opportunity communities. The House funding bill for the departments of Transportation and Housing and Urban Development (HUD) includes $50 million for the demonstration: $30 million for housing mobility services and $20 million for new vouchers for families with children.
