Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program
The Housing Choice Voucher program (HCV) is a tenant-based program that is funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This program allows participants to find their own housing, including apartments, townhouses and single family homes as long as the unit meets the standards of quality and safety as established by HUD. Since the HCV program is tenant based it allows participants to move without losing assistance. People who receive Section 8 vouchers from the Housing Authority are able to find their own rental housing and use the voucher to help pay their rent. To learn more about the HUD Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program click HCV Program.
The Housing Authority does not manage or own the housing in this program. Locating suitable housing is the tenant’s responsibility. We direct interested landlords to this website to list their properties (www.coloradohousingsearch.com

HACP Payment Standards
Effective October 1, 2020, the Housing Authority of the City of Pueblo Board of Directors has approved the use of Small Area Fair Market Rent (SAFMR) for our Payment Standards. In metropolitan areas, HUD defines Small Areas using ZIP Codes within the metropolitan area. Using ZIP codes as the basis for FMRs provides tenants with greater ability to move into “Opportunity Neighborhoods” with jobs, public transportation, and good schools. They also provide for multiple payment standards within a metropolitan area, and they are likely to reduce need for extensive market area rent reasonableness studies. Lastly, HUD hopes that setting FMRs for each ZIP code will reduce overpayment in lower-rent areas.
