Families with an active housing choice voucher can transfer their assistance to any other city in the country that has a HCV Program. This program feature is known as portability. When a family transfers their voucher from another housing authority into Corpus Christi, it is called “porting in.”
When a family transfers their voucher from Corpus Christi to another city, it is called “porting out.” The transfer process can be timely, so families must plan accordingly. If you are a current voucher holder and you are interested in porting into Corpus Christi, you must request to exercise the Portability option from your current housing authority.
If found eligible to port, your housing authority must submit the paperwork below to us, so that we may start the process.
– Family Portability Information – Form HUD-52665
– Voucher – Form HUD-52646 (issue date must not be a future date)
– Family Report – Form HUD-50058 (Copy of the most recent)
– Copies of income verification listed on Family Report such as:
Earned Income Verification (EIV) Report (if available), and
Supporting Income verifications matching the Family Report.
– Family contact information, including a valid contact phone number and mailing address.
The documents listed above may be sent to the Housing Authority via mail, fax, or email at the following:
