The goal of the Housing Choice Voucher program is to provide �decent, safe and sanitary� housing at an affordable cost to low-income families. To accomplish this, program regulations set basic Housing Quality Standards (HQS), which all units must meet before assistance can be paid on behalf of a family and at least annually throughout the term of the assisted tenancy. HQS defines �standard housing� and establishes the minimum criteria necessary for the health and safety of program participants.
