Portability for Housing Choice Voucher Participants
Housing Choice vouchers are accepted by cities across the country, giving families the opportunity to choose where they live. As with any move, participants must provide a 30-day written notice to their landlord and the housing agency in which they currently participate. However, depending on the lease, the landlord may require up to a 60-day written notice. A mutual rescission may also be required. For current Savin Rock Communities participants wanting to move, a completed Request to Move form is also required (you can find this form under “forms” below).
For incoming portability requests, participants should contact their current housing agency and request paperwork to be submitted to Savin Rock Communities to start the portability request. Once an apartment in West Haven is secured, the Request for Tenancy Approval form (you can find this form under “forms” below) must be completed by the new landlord and participant must contact the new tenant coordinator at Savin Rock Communities.
Every housing authority has its own rules, regulations and deadlines. Contact Savin Rock Communities to obtain this information. Fair Market Rent limits, payment standards, and utility allowances for Savin Rock Communities may be different and may affect the rent amount paid. Subsidy standards may be different. A new voucher will be issued by Savin Rock Communities. Savin Rock Communities may change the size of your voucher. Prior to your move to West Haven, you will meet with your assigned tenant coordinator to re-verify your income and household. Occupancy standards may be different.
