Moving to Charlotte

If you currently have a Housing Choice (Section 8) Voucher in another city or another state and you are planning to move to Charlotte, NC, here is what you need to know about bringing your rental subsidy with you, a process known as “porting” your voucher.

Click here then scroll to the bottom of the page to read the eight steps to portability or voucher transfer.

Effective January 1, 2018, INLIVIAN implemented a mandatory work requirement. All non-elderly/non-disabled households will be expected to work 20 hours per week. Families porting to INLIVIAN must be employed within the Charlotte Mecklenburg area, or must provide a job offer letter from a prospective employer prior to porting into INLIVIAN’s program.

You can also call our Portability Hotline: 704-336-8271.

The porting process can take several weeks.

Please tell your current worker that INLIVIAN is currently billing not absorbing vouchers.
