I am a Housing Choice Voucher program participant. Can I move?

Category: Housing Choice Voucher Program

A family’s housing needs change over time with changes in family size, job locations or for other reasons. The Housing Choice voucher program is designed to allow families to move without the loss of housing assistance.

FWHS typically requires that moves occur during the annual re-certification period. Families must notify FWHS 10 days from the date of their Annual Recertification letter. The landlord must complete an affidavit of damages before the family is given a voucher allowing the move.

You also may choose to “port” a voucher to another jurisdiction. Visit www.fwhs.org/portability-information/ for information about porting a voucher to or from Fort Worth or email us at portability@fwhs.org.
