Housing Choice Vouchers

Unison administers 1,498 Housing Choice Vouchers on behalf of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This program helps low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent and safe housing in the private market. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses and apartments. When available, applicants are required to apply though our online Lottery system. Applicants are held in a lottery pool and once selected applicants will go through processing to determine formal eligibility.

Project Based Vouchers

Our Project-Based Voucher Program is designed to help families with rental assistance payments while assuring they are in decent, safe and affordable housing. This program requires interested eligible families to reside in Unison-approved properties. Applicants are selected through our online Lottery system.

Veterans Vouchers

The VASH Program is a joint effort between HUD and the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to move Veterans and their families out of homelessness and into permanent housing. Through VASH, Unison is awarded a limited number of Housing Choice Vouchers for Adams County Veterans to rent privately owned housing, contributing no more than 30 percent of their income toward rent. If you are a veteran in need of housing assistance, call the National Call Center for Homeless Veterans at 1-877-4AID-VET

Family Reunification Program Vouchers

Unison administers Family Unification Program Vouchers in partnership with the Adams County Department of Child and Family Services (ACDCFS). Through FUP, Unison provides rental assistance to qualifying families whose lack of adequate housing is the primary cause of the separation, or imminent separation, of a child or children from their families. Initially, ACDCFS determines if the family meets their eligibility requirements and then refers the families to Unison.

Family Self Sufficiency Program

The Family Self Sufficiency (FSS) program is an employment based program that assists families with identifying their strengths while providing support and resources to accomplish their goals. FSS has the unique benefit of providing a savings account as an incentive – as your income increases and you meet your goals, funds are deposited in the savings account. You must be a Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) participant to qualify for the FSS program.

Low Income Public Housing

Public housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to local housing agencies (HAs) that manage the housing for low-income residents at rents they can afford.The Low Income Public Housing Program (LIPH) provides one (1) bedroom units to eligible participants that are Elderly (62 years of age or older) or disabled.


Applications are available between the hours of 8:00 A.M. & 4:30 P.M. Monday thru Friday.
