Programs

Each month the Provo City Housing Authority (PCHA) helps approximately 1,300 Provo resident households afford decent and safe housing through our affordable housing programs.  Our programs assist low-income families, elderly and disabled individuals.  These programs include Public Housing, the Housing Choice Voucher Program, Low-Income-Housing-Tax-Credit (LIHTC) Affordable Housing, Supportive Housing, Shelter Plus Care vouchers, and Family Self Sufficiency.

All housing recipients are required to income-qualify for the housing assistance they receive.  For the Housing Choice Voucher program, the income limit 50% of the Area Median Income (AMI) adjusted for household size.  For the Public Housing Program, the income limit is 50% of AMI adjusted for household size for developments build or acquired after 1981, and 80% AMI adjusted for household size for developments built or acquired prior to 1981.
