Sacramento Courtesy Housing Quality Standards Checklist Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program Mobile App

This Sacramento Courtesy Housing Quality Standards Checklist Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program Mobile App gives you an idea of the types of items that will be checked during a Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspection. As a housing authority, use this app for evaluating each dwelling unit for low-income families. Use this HQS inspection app to determine level of public housing assistance to be granted by the HCV program. As a HQS inspector, determine rental assistance according to this standards-based assessment for low-income housing.

Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program regulations set forth basic housing quality standards (HQS) which all units must meet before assistance can be paid on behalf of a family and at least annually throughout the term of the assisted tenancy. HQS define ""standard housing"" and establish the minimum criteria for the health and safety of program participants. Current HQS regulations consist of 13 key aspects of housing quality, performance requirements, and acceptability criteria to meet each performance requirement. HQS includes requirements for all housing types, including single and multi-family dwelling units, as well as specific requirements for special housing types such as manufactured homes, congregate housing, single room occupancy, shared housing, and group residences.
