IDAHO - BOISE CITY & ADA COUNTY SUBSIDIZED HOUSING
LOW-INCOME,  VERY LOW-INCOME, & RENT ADJUSTED HOUSING

The Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority provides rental assistance to over 2000 individuals and families through the administration of the following programs:

PUBLIC HOUSING
The Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority manages two apartment complexes (Franklin and Capitol Plazas) and five scattered site duplexes with federal aid from the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) under the Public Housing Program. The Public Housing Program was established to provide decent and safe rental housing to eligible low income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities.

To be eligible for assistance, applicants must qualify under HUD established income limits, as well as other eligibility criteria established by the Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority. Franklin and Capitol Plaza are exclusively designated for occupancy by elderly and disabled individuals, and the scattered site duplexes are reserved for low-income families. Program participants contribute 30% of their monthly adjusted income towards rent directly to the Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority.

The waiting list for Public Housing Assistance is from three months to two years, depending on resident turnover.

SECTION 8 HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHERS
The Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority administers the Housing Choice Voucher Program under contract with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program enables very-low income families to obtain decent, safe, and affordable rental housing on the private market. The Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority currently assists over 1800 very-low income households with Section 8 rental assistance in Boise City and Ada County.

To be eligible for assistance, applicants must qualify under HUD established income limits as well as other eligibility criteria established by the Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority. Program participants contribute between 30% to 40% of their monthly adjusted gross income towards rent and utilities, while the Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority pays the difference in the contract rent directly to the landlord. Families are able to rent all types of decent, safe, and sanitary dwelling units.

Due to the large demand for rental assistance in the community, and a limited amount of funding, applicants are placed on a waiting list for assistance. The waiting list for voucher assistance runs from approximately 36-48 months, depending upon the funding received by the Boise City/Ada County Housing Authority.
