UERPC also houses the Regional Housing Authority. This Section 8 Housing Program is the major effort in assisting lower-income families to live in decent, safe and sanitary housing. This program provides assistance for low-income families in the private rental market through the HUD Housing Choice Voucher Program.
To find available housing units or to list your unit for rent, please visit the link below:
Eligibility for a rental voucher is determined by the local Housing Authority based on the total annual gross income and family size and is limited to U.S. citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status. Income guidelines and rent limitations are available at the local housing authority office in Postville.
The assistance is available for low-income households in Allamakee, Clayton, Fayette, Howard and Winneshiek Counties. Families making application will be placed on a wait list. Households will pay at least 30% of their monthly adjusted income towards their rent.
Anyone interested or wanting further information should contact the Upper Explorerland Regional Housing Authority at 563-864-7551, Ext. 106.
