Housing & Neighborhood Preservation administers the federally funded Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program for Virginia Beach.

This subsidy is paid directly to the landlord.

In Virginia Beach, more than 2,000 households, including families, seniors, persons with disabilities, and veterans are able to afford rental housing through the HCV program.
