HUD Updates HCV Dashboard

HUD has updated the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) dashboard. The HCV dashboard presents to the general public visualizations of HCV program statistics based on most recently available data taken from, among other places, the Voucher Management System (VMS). The updated dashboard now includes pages on leasing changes, percentages of HCV programs devoted to special purpose vouchers, leasing potential, project-based voucher portfolios, comparing budget and reserves between two states or programs, and comparing leasing and per unit cost (PUC) between two states or programs.  

In addition to aggregate national data, the Dashboard also shows data on individual PHAs. Housing authorities can be selected and data can be viewed on things like utilization and budget reserves. Additionally, national data can be viewed while excluding MTW agencies and while including MTW agencies (as MTW agencies operate differently, their metrics may not resemble other agencies).  

Finally, the Department has also updated the “HCV Dashboard User Guide & Data Dictionary.”  

The Department has posted a YouTube video discussing and explaining the expansion, which can be found here.
