Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority to host Housing Choice Voucher Program and Community Partnership Symposium

TOLEDO, September 25, 2019: Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority (LMHA) is hosting an event to help inform the community about the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program. The event will take place on Thursday, October 10, 2019, from 5:30 — 7:00 p.m. at The Summit Event Center. The venue is located at 23 North Summit Street in downtown Toledo. Karen Baird, interim vice president of the Housing Choice Voucher Program and Jennifer Smith, manager of the program, will be the main presenters.

The goal of the symposium is to educate the community about the Housing Choice Voucher program, including how they can take advantage of it from a community housing and landlord/developer perspective. The HCV Program can create opportunities for partnerships and affordable housing solutions with funding for:


·  Tenant-based rental assistance,

·  Project-based rental assistance,

·  Homeownership assistance.

Organizations that will benefit from attending the symposium include: non-profit organizations, multi-family developers (both non- and for-profit), landlords, support service providers, financial institutions and organizations interested in learning about the HCV program. Any organization involved in housing support for their clients should find it particularly interesting.

The Housing Choice Voucher Program, formerly known as Section 8, assists individuals and families in finding affordable housing in the private market. Under this program, LMHA pays a portion of the rent on behalf of the individual/family. The individual/family pays the landlord the difference. LMHA will not deny any family or individual the opportunity to apply for or receive assistance under the HCV program on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, religion, familial status, disability, military status or sexual orientation.

LMHA’s jurisdiction covers the counties of Lucas, Fulton, and Wood (excluding the city of Bowling Green) in the state of Ohio and Monroe County in the state of Michigan.

This symposium will provide an opportunity for the community to discuss their particular housing needs with LMHA officials. “We want our communities to be more aware of all of the benefits that the Housing Choice Voucher Program can offer to those seeking housing and those who can provide housing on the private market. It’s really a win-win for everyone and LMHA stands ready to help,” stated Demetria Simpson, LMHA president and CEO.
