News  Emergency Housing Voucher Listening Sessions and Written Comments

  • Housing and Community Development

DHCD stakeholders are invited to comment on the Emergency Housing Vouchers plan through listening sessions and written comments.

DHCD has received an award of 917 Emergency Housing Vouchers (EHV) under the American Rescue Plan.  These are tenant-based vouchers available to 1) homeless; 2) at-risk of homelessness; 3) fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking; or 4) recently homeless and for whom providing rental assistance will prevent the household’s housing instability.  Please review PIH Notice 2021-15 and visit for additional information on this program.

DHCD is hosting two Listening Sessions on Wednesday, July 7, one of which will occur in the evening to accommodate schedules. For more information and to register, please click here.
