HCV (Section 8) Program

BangorHousing administers approximately 500 HCV vouchers in Bangor and the surrounding towns of Hermon, Hampden, Glenburn, and Veazie. The voucher program allows participants to choose where they live through the area served. Rent is broken down into two segments, the tenant portion and the BangorHousing portion. The tenant portion is 30% of adjusted monthly income and paid to the landlord directly from the tenant. The BangorHousing portion is the difference between the tenant portion and the Payment Standard and that amount is sent directly to the landlord. Currently, we work with over 150 private landlords that participate in the program.
