Broward County Housing Authority (BCHA) has a mission to create, provide and increase high quality housing opportunities. To accomplish this mission BCHA has worked to make a variety of rental housing and housing assistance options available to Broward County residents. Whether Building Better Communities, Inc. and related enterprises are building or acquiring affordable rentals, or BCHA is providing housing assistance payments through the Housing Choice Voucher Program, more than 6,000 families are benefiting from our activities.
The BCHA Asset Management Department owns and operates 373 federally subsidized rental housing units in several properties located throughout Broward County. These subsidized rentals provide homes for eligible low income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Eligibility is based on annual gross income and is limited to U.S. citizens or those with eligible immigration status. Residents are selected from an established waiting list and applications are only available when the wait list is open.
Several affordable housing properties offer eligible families the opportunity to rent apartments or townhomes at rates lower than current market rents. These properties are separate and distinct from the BCHA portfolio and are operated under different guidelines. BCHA, through its affiliated entities, is pleased to be able to add this much needed housing to the affordable housing stock in Broward County. We hope that one of the communities listed within the affordable housing portfolio may meet your individual housing needs. To apply to any affordable housing property contact the on-site management staff directly for information on eligibility requirements and availability.
Housing Choice Voucher Program
The Housing Choice Voucher Program enables low-income residents of Broward County to rent from private landlords with rental assistance administered by the Assisted Housing Department. This extremely popular housing option provides low-income residents the opportunity to live anywhere in Broward County in private rental housing. The BCHA Housing Choice Voucher Program provides monthly housing assistance to more than 5,000 households. Participants come from an established waiting list. Applications for this program are available only when the wait list is open. Eligibility for a rental voucher is based on annual gross income and is limited to U.S. citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status.
