Portability Process for Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers to Jefferson Parish

If you have a Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) and live in another area but would like to move to Jefferson Parish, this can be done through the portability program. To exercise portability in our jurisdiction, please contact the Housing Authority where you are living in now and advise them of your desire to move to Jefferson Parish. Once approved by your local Housing Authority, they will need to send your voucher and necessary documents to us through one of the following sources:

Fax- 504-366-9475

Mail: P.O. Box 2996 Gretna, LA 70054

Email: Lhebert@lahousingprogram.org

Once we receive your portability packet, you will be contacted for a briefing in our office within approximately 30 days. Please be aware that Jefferson Parish Housing will honor a 1 bedroom voucher for every 2 people in your household. For any further information, please contact Laura Hebert at 504-366-5344 or via email at the email address listed above.
