Learn About the Important Aspects of Quality in Housing Under the HCV Program and Get Guidelines to Prepare for HQS Inspections.

The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program aims to provide "decent, safe and sanitary" housing at an affordable cost to low-income families. Housing Quality Standards are useful for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and local Public Housing Authorities (PHA) to accomplish this goal by defining "standard housing" and establishing the minimum quality criteria necessary for the health and safety of program participants. All HCV housing units must meet these standards for housing quality in order to participate in the HCV program.

This session with expert speaker Paul Flogstad will cover the quality standards which are enforced and important aspects of quality in housing, ranging from sanitary facilities, food preparation to structure and material and other areas.
