Broward County Housing Authority (BCHA) has a mission to create, provide and increase high quality housing opportunities. In order to accomplish this mission BCHA has worked to make a variety of rental housing and housing assistance options available to Broward County residents.
The BCHA Asset Management Department owns and operates federally subsidized rental housing for eligible low income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities in a portfolio of properties located throughout Broward County. Eligibility is based on annual gross income, whether you qualify as elderly, a person with a disability, or as a family and is limited to U.S. citizens or those with eligible immigration status. If you do not qualify for BCHA operated housing, there are other housing options that may interest you.
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 is pleased to be able to add this much needed housing to the affordable housing stock in Broward County and 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.
