About Ann Arbor Housing Commission

AAHC administers Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV). These Vouchers allows participants to live in a privately owned rental unit and receive supplemental rental assistance from AAHC. Rent supplements are subsidies paid by the government to private landlords who accept low-income tenants. The supplements make up the difference between rental "market price" and the amount of rent paid by tenants, for example 30% of the tenants income. Our jurisdiction includes Washtenaw, Western Wayne and Monroe counties. Out of the 1333 Housing Choice Vouchers, 100 vouchers are reserved specifically for families where the head of household has a disability. The AAHC can only use the vouchers it has the budget authority to use.
