Overview

While the eligibility requirements for the WtW Voucher Program target a specific population, HUD does not specify how PHAs are to select from the large number of families eligible to participate in the program. Therefore, developing clearly specified selection criteria is a critical front-end task. It requires that a PHA and its partners have a clear vision and understanding of the objectives of the program, the critical housing needs of the community, and the target population they intend to serve.

PHAs should consider selection criteria that will help identify families with the most critical housing needs and who are most likely to obtain or retain employment. Selecting the right families will have a significant impact on whether the PHA succeeds, in achieving its objectives as well as the broader objective of the program--enabling families to obtain or retain employment.
