CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -

Part of the Charlottesville Housing Advisory Committee met Wednesday to address questions and concerns raised by city staff about a proposed city-run rental assistance program.

The program includes plans for a city-run voucher program, which is modeled by a national program called Housing Choice Voucher Program

The housing committee originally pitched the program to Charlottesville City Council in June.  Council approved the $900,000 supplemental voucher program contingent on the committee's ability to develop a more concrete plan.

“The first hope is that we’re going to move a hundred or so families into better housing, it’s going to alleviate some - an inadequate amount - but some of the pressure on the waiting list,” said Phil D'Oronzio, chairman of the Housing Advisory Committee. 

The committee is expected to present its final plans for the program to City Council on September 18.
