Stability Voucher Program

The McAllen Housing Authority (MHA) was issued seven Stability Vouchers (SV) by the US Department of Housing and Urban Development in July of 2023.

MHA is accepting direct referrals from the Texas Homeless Network and Hidalgo County Urban County Program Continuum of Care (CoC) for Stability Voucher eligible populations listed below. If an individual or family believed they may be eligible for SV assistance they may contact the McAllen Housing Authority (MHA) at 956-686-3951 or via email at MHA will then refer applicants to the CoC and accept applicants based on the CoC eligibility rating.

Stability Voucher Eligible Population

In order to be eligible for a SV, an individual or family must meet one of four eligibility categories:

  1. Homeless
  2. At risk of homelessness
  3. Fleeing, or attempting to flee, domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, stalking, or human trafficking
  4. Recently homeless and for whom providing rental assistance will prevent the family's homelessness or having high risk of housing instability.

In accordance with HUD guidelines, the MHA is not accepting applications directly for the SV program and will not be selecting participants off of its Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) waiting list.
