The Bloomington Housing Authority’s Housing Choice Voucher program will open for applications tomorrow.
According to Housing Choice Voucher Program Manager Daniel Harmon, in order for the city’s Housing Authority to provide voucher assistance, a family may not have income which exceeds 50 percent of the area’s median income.
Bloomington’s median income is $49,900. To qualify, applicants must make half the median income which is $21,850 for one person.
Harmon says the first step to apply for a housing voucher is for families to visit the Authority’s website for rules and explanations on how applicants are selected.
Participants will be notified five days prior to registration closing. Harmon says the qualifications are set by federal regulations.
The Bloomington Housing Authority offers computer lab access with staff support at the Housing Authority’s main office, 1007 North Summit Street, as well as at the Community Building, 1002 North Summit Street.”
Harmon says families requesting a housing voucher must fill out information on the Housing Authority’s website, detailing total family income.
Any changes to information for applicants needs to be provided to the Bloomington Housing Authority in writing.
