AHVP and Other Types of Housing Subsidies

The Alternative Housing Voucher Program (AHVP) is state subsidized housing rental assistance for people with disabilities. Although it is referenced as a "transistional program," there is no set time limit for participation in the program; however, once a person is leased up under the AHVP they must continue to look for permanent housing to "transition" into. Tenants are required to document their efforts to locate other non-AHVP subsidized housing. Other suitable housing may include Section 8 certificate/voucher programs, MRVP/Section 8 Project-Based Assistance, MHFA developments, or private housing if you can afford to rent without a subsidy.

AHVP can be used in neighboring communities of the town that provided the voucher. For example, if you received your voucher in Falmouth, you may use it in Barnstable. AHVP vouchers are for single households, not families, and can be applied to apartments or houses.
