Homeownership Voucher Program
The Scott County CDA has openings in our Homeownership Voucher Program. The Homeownership Voucher Program is similar to the Section 8 Program, but instead of monthly assistance going to assist with rent payments, your monthly assistance is sent to your mortgage company to pay your mortgage payments. The Homeownership Voucher Program is time-limited and will provide mortgage assistance for a maximum of 15-years and when it ends, you will remain the homeowner! You must be a current Scott County CDA Section 8 participant and meet all other eligibility criteria.

At every stage of life, where we live is the foundation for our health, education, and economic wellbeing so the CDA is proud to assist some of our most vulnerable populations through rental assistance vouchers that are designated for special populations. Funding for the following programs are made possible through the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) or Minnesota Housing and are administered by the CDA with the support of Scott County Health and Human Services.
The Bridges Rental Assistance Program provides housing assistance for people with very low incomes and mental illness. Bridges is designed to help people with high needs by providing a housing subsidy that is linked with community mental health services.
Housing Trust Fund
The Housing Trust Fund is a short-term rental assistance program that serves households experiencing long-term homelessness in our community. The short-term rent subsidy helps stabilize housing while giving households the time to work with community services to transition to more long term, affordable housing.
