How To Apply

Individuals who are interested in applying for rental assistance though the Mod Rehab Program should complete a NHHFA Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Rental Assistance Application.

Eligible families are placed on NHHFA’s HCV and Mod Rehab sub-list. When vacancies occur in Mod Rehab projects, NHHFA refers families for participation from its sub-list to the owners. Owners select families for occupancy according to their tenant selection process.
