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