Section 8 Administrative Plan
Housing Choice Voucher Program
The Housing Authority of Travis County (HATC) receives its funding for the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program from the Department of Housing and Urban Development. HATC is not a federal department or agency. A public housing agency (HATC) is a governmental or public body, created and authorized by state law to develop and operate housing and housing programs for low-income families. HATC enters into an Annual Contributions Contract with HUD to administer the program requirements on behalf of HUD. HATC must ensure compliance with federal laws, regulations and notices and must establish policy and procedures to clarify federal requirements and to ensure consistency in program operation.
