The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Data Dashboard (dashboard) shows budget and leasing trends, reserve balances, program admissions and attrition, per-unit cost and leasing potential for the program nationally and allows the user to drill down to the state and PHA-level. The dashboard also provides a current snapshot of utilization for HUD’s special purpose voucher programs including the Mainstream, Family Unification (FUP) and Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH) programs. The dashboard is typically updated monthly with the most current and relevant data. However, it should be noted that much of HUD’s data is received from PHAs and is aggregated resulting in an approximately 2-month delay between the reporting period and the data’s availability.
The HCV dashboard is accessible both internally to HUD employees and externally to the public. The public facing dashboard is embedded below and accessible via this link.
