The housing choice voucher program is the federal government's major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses, and apartments.

No person shall, on the grounds of race, color, sex, sexual orientation, religion, national origin, familial status, or disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination under KHA housing programs.
