Portability

If you are interested in moving into the jurisdiction of IHA and you are currently a voucher participant, please read the following information: IHA is absorbing. Also, if you have already located in a unit in our jurisdiction, please review the Payment Standards and Occupancy Standards for our agency which may be different than the housing authority you are currently with.

Our occupancy standards are: one bedroom for the Head of Household and one bedroom for every two members regardless of age or sex. (This means your son and daughter might share a bedroom if that is how you decide to assign the bedrooms.)

All incoming portability documentation for participants who are porting into our jurisdiction is to be faxed or mailed to:
