A surprise $600,000 increase in funding from the U.S. Department for Housing and Urban Development for housing vouchers will allow the Ann Arbor Housing Commission to put another 164 families in affordable housing by the end of the year. The additional funds will allow the Ann Arbor Housing Commission to clear its waitlist for housing vouchers. The vouchers can be used by tenents to make up the difference between what they can afford and the rent rate set by the landlords. Landlords have to agree to participate in the housing voucher program.
