The Glen Cove Housing Choice Voucher Program is now open!

Tenant-based vouchers increase affordable housing choices for very low-income families (i.e. families with income below 50% of area median income). Families with a tenant-based voucher choose and lease safe, decent, and affordable privately owned rental housing that meets HUD’s Housing Quality Standards (HQS) and has a reasonable rent as compared to other units in the area.

The Glen Cove Section 8 Program has 340 vouchers for rental housing. The Program will be accepting applications online only from August 16, 2021 to August 18, 2021.
