The North Little Rock Housing Authority is known far and wide for being innovative in their approach to problems facing residents and community and has one of the greatest homeownership programs in Arkansas.
Using the Program
In May of 2003, the first family used a Section 8 Voucher to move into homeownership. As of October 2015, 67 families have used their Section 8 Voucher to purchase a home, through the North Little Rock Housing Authority Homeownership Program.
The success of the Homeownership Program depends upon removing barriers to clients striving for homeownership. Through the program, each client’s barriers are approached as if going through an obstacle course. Any obstacle standing in the way of an individual attaining their goals is addressed.
Finally, the case management and personal post counseling component of Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program should not be underestimated. This has been, and continues to be, the key ingredient to the success of homeowners. The emotional support given to our families has increased their chances of continuing success.
The North Little Rock Housing Authority will continue to work toward the goal of homeownership by utilizing a combination of strategies and partnerships.
