Portability Information

The Killeen Housing Authority does accept portability. We are currently billing. Please refer to the Portability Information Packet below for instructions and contact information that you will need to request a port to KHA. 

FAQ Regarding Portability Processes

1. Can I move into the unit before the paperwork has been processed?

The Killeen Housing Authority (KHA) does not advise nor suggest that you do so.  You must be determined eligible for the unit, the unit must pass a Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspection, and the rent must be determined to be reasonable prior to you moving in.

2. How much will I pay?

After the unit has passed inspection and the contract has been submitted for payment, you will be mailed a "Rent Change Notice" letter from KHA.  The family's portion of the rent will be included in this letter.

3. How much is my Voucher worth?

The HCV program is an income-based program and the amount of your housing assistance depends upon your income.  Once your paperwork is received and processed, you will receive an "Affordability" sheet that will assist you with selecting an affordable unit.

4. Can I get an extension on my Voucher?

For Incoming Portability, the time stated on your voucher will be the same time issued by your initial Housing Authority.  Meaning, that the KHA voucher will expire on the same date as indicated on the voucher from your initial Housing Authority.

For Outgoing Portability, voucher extensions must be submitted, in writing, at our offices two weeks prior to the expiration date of your voucher and will only be approved under extenuating circumstances.  Please allow 10 business days for a decision. 


5. Can I get an extension on my Voucher?

For Incoming Portability, the time stated on your voucher will be the same time issued by your initial Housing Authority.  Meaning, that the KHA voucher will expire on the same date as indicated on the voucher from your initial Housing Authority.

For Outgoing Portability, voucher extensions must be submitted, in writing, at our offices two weeks prior to the expiration date of your voucher and will only be approved under extenuating circumstances.  Please allow 10 business days for a decision. 


6. May I add someone to my Voucher?

KHA will NOT add members to your household during your portability process.  Only the household composition recognized by your initial Housing Authority will be processed during the KHA portability process.

7. I wish to cancel my port to Killeen and return to my Housing Authority.  What do I do?

You will need to submit a declaration to KHA, in writing, stating that you want to cancel your port request and have your documents sent back to your initial Housing Authority.  Then, inform your initial Housing Authority that you have cancelled your request to port to Killeen. 


8. I need an extra bedroom for medical equipment.  How do I request that?

You will need to fill out a Reasonable Accommodation request form and submit the completed form to our offices.

9. My KHA voucher has expired and I didn't submit a Request for Tenancy Approval.  What do I do now?

KHA will send you a closed file letter which will explain that we are closing your file and your documents are being returned to your initial Housing Authority for failure to lease up.  The closed file letter will also give you the right to appeal KHA's decision to close your file and cancel your port request.


Killeen Housing Authority

Housing Choice Voucher Program participants can take their vouchers with them if they move (port) within the U.S. to another area with a Housing Choice Voucher Program. The Voucher Program participant MUST notify the Housing Authority where they currently live that they want to utilize the Portability option of the voucher to transfer to Killeen or from Killeen to another city of their choice.  Once the portability request is approved, your PHA issues the family a voucher and must contact the Killeen Housing Authority on the family's behalf. Your PHA must promptly notify the Killeen Housing Authority to expect the incoming family. This means your PHA contacts the Killeen Housing Authority on the family's behalf, typically by telephone, fax, or email. Simply referring the family to HUD or to a website for information on the Killeen Housing Authority's address does not fulfill the responsibilities of your PHA under the program regulations.

All Portability paperwork should be sent by your Housing Authority to the Killeen Housing Authority either by the email listed below, the fax number listed below or sent U.S. post to the address below. Please allow 3 - 5 business days for a response.
