What if I get terminated from the program?

Among those reasons that the Garland Housing Agency (GHA) may deny or terminate home ownership assistance are:

  • The family does not comply with voucher program requirements at 24CFR 982.552 or for criminal activity as defined by 24CFR 982.553
  • The family does not comply with family obligations described at 24CFR 982.551 or 24CFR 982.633

The GHA must terminate voucher home ownership assistance for the family if the family is dispossessed from the home pursuant to a judgment or order of foreclosure on any mortgage-securing debt incurred to purchase the home.

The GHA may permit a family subject to a foreclosure action to move to a new unit with voucher rental assistance. However, the GHA must deny such permission and terminate the family's participation in the housing choice voucher program if the family defaulted on an Federal Housing Authority-insured mortgage and the family fails to demonstrate that it has:

  • Conveyed the title to the home to Housing and Urban Development or Housing and Urban Development’s designee
  • Has moved from the home within the period established or approved by Housing and Urban Development
