Important Note: The Tacoma Housing Authority no longer administers the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program and now operates the HOP (Housing Opportunity Program) instead. The Tacoma Housing Authority is a Moving to Work agency and provides vouchers via the Housing Opportunity Program that is pretty similar to the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program, and is a program funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Here are 3 key differences between the Housing Opportunity Program and the Section 8 HCVP:

1. The amount of the monthly rent subsidy is determined by the number of people living in a household.

2. Unless all members of the household are over 57 years of age or are disabled, or there is a disabled or senior family member that lives in the household and all adult members receive income due to that, the maximum time you can receive rental assistance is for a period of 5 years.

3. Unlike the Section 8 vouchers which you can use to live anywhere in the US, the HOP vouchers are not portable. The only exceptions being that one of the members of the household was a domestic violence victim, or some other situation where a reasonable accommodation is necessary.
