This program is for people that don’t qualify for the other programs or would prefer to be renters. The Select Choice Program allows the person to find a qualifying home in which they will apply to rent. If approved, and the rent is below fair market rent – the renter will pay 1/3 of their income whereas HHS will pay the difference. In the event there are any issues, the renter will contact the building owner or management.
Select Choice Program is for people that have been convicted of crimes in the past 15 years as they will not qualify for the home ownership program. The tenant might be responsible for utilities.
