<p>For 42 years, Housing Opportunities Commission (HOC) has provided the people of Montgomery County an affordable way to acquire a home, either for rent or sale. There are three divisions that comprise of HOC:&nbsp; public housing, Housing Choice Voucher and mortgage purchase program.</p> <p>Public housing is not concentrated housing. Instead, it is a house or apartment that HOC owns. The rent is based on income and is reasonable.</p> <p>The Housing Choice Voucher program, formerly known as Section 8, provides a voucher to cover a portion of the rent. The resident pays the difference.&nbsp;</p> <p>The mortgage purchase program helps applicants find good interest rates. All of these programs work to assist applicants in obtaining homes that are within their own income. HOC has a Facebook page to help educate consumers about the program options.</p>
