Are you having trouble paying your rent and utilities?

Do you want better housing?

If you answered “Yes” then check into…
the Housing Choice Voucher Program in Dunn County.

The Housing Choice Voucher Program is a federally funded program with the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD).  The goal is to provide assistance to Dunn County residents with renting safe, decent, affordable housing.*  Participants in the program pay 30% of their adjusted gross income towards rent.  The Housing Choice Voucher Program pays the remaining balance directly to the landlord.

     *Note: the city of Menomonie is served by the Menomonie Housing Authority – 715-235-0656

In order to be eligible for the Housing Choice Voucher Program you must qualify under the following income eligibility factors:

When the Housing Choice Voucher Program receives your application, your name is placed on the waiting list.  The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program generally assists 89 households in all of Dunn County at one given time.

The Dunn County Housing Authority does not own any rental properties.  You find your own housing from a private landlord.  All rental units must pass a rent reasonableness evaluation.  The Housing Choice Voucher Program cannot approve a unit if the landlord/owner is the parent, child, grandparent, sister, or brother of any member of the family.

The purpose of Dunn County Housing Authority’s Housing Choice Voucher Program is to provide housing opportunities to lower income families and disabled adults who reside in all the rural areas of Dunn County.
