The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program aims to provide "decent, safe and sanitary" housing at an affordable cost to low-income families. Housing Quality Standards are useful for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and local Public Housing Authorities (PHA) to accomplish this goal by defining "standard housing" and establishing the minimum quality criteria necessary for the health and safety of program participants.
