The Housing Opportunities Commission of Montgomery County (HOC) has developed proposed revisions and new additions for its Administrative Plan for the Housing Choice Voucher program (“Administrative Plan”). The proposed changes involve the Agency’s Project-Based Voucher program, its operation of the Rental Assistance Demonstration program, and its administration of its waiting list. The Administrative Plan document defines and describes the policies for the operation of HOC’s Housing Choice Voucher program. These revisions will go into effect following approval by HOC’s Commission.
