You WILL be Forced to Accept Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers for EVERY
Rental unit unless you do your part.

Two bills have been introduced at the General Assembly Session this year which would add "Source of Income" to Virginia's list of protected classes.
If these bills pass, every rental unit will have no choice but to accept Housing Choice Vouchers which are part of the Section 8 program and require:
1. Your owners to sign a HAP (Housing Assistance Payment) Contract
2. Units be put on HOLD for 1-4 weeks while waiting for inspections and paperwork
3. Other delays and increased staff time to navigate the cumbersome and arbitrary federal program

What Should You DO?
1. Come to Richmond Thursday, February 1, from 1:30 to 5:00. We need to pack the committee room with VAMA Members so that we can show the House General Laws Committee that the Strings attached to the Housing Choice Voucher program are burdensome and harmful to the housing industry.
2. If you have a story about how the Housing Choice Voucher system has cost you or your residents time, money, or heartache, write up a statement to share with the Committee Members

The more people we get on Thursday, the better our chances of defeating this harmful legislation.

If you want to keep participation in the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program voluntary, register Now!
