DBHA’s Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program allows low-income families to rent quality housing in the private market via federal funds provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Through the HCV Program, DBHA pays a portion of eligible families’ rent each month directly to the landlord. Families can use their vouchers to rent a house or apartment in the private market throughout the city of Daytona Beach, and parts of Volusia County. Because there are more families who need rental assistance than there are funds available, DBHA uses a waiting list to administer the program to eligible families.
DBHA has and will continue to take steps to ensure that every unit in the HCV Program meets Housing Quality Standards (HQS) and are inspected in a timely manner. Our guideline requires owners or their representatives to be present at their annual inspection appointments. The January 2016 guideline states that any re-inspection for annual inspections, that results in “inconclusive” or "no-show” will result in a failed inspection and may cause the unit to go into abatement.
