The Housing Choice Voucher Program administered by Muskogee Housing is funded by the US Dept. of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). The purpose of the program is to make decent, safe and sanitary housing affordable to very-low income households in the private rental market. Households that meet eligibility requirements normally pay approximately 30% of their adjusted monthly income toward the monthly rent and utility cost. The program pays the balance of the rent directly to the owner of the rental property or to their appointed agent, up to the published HUD maximum amounts.
