Section 8 Voucher Processing
As Contract Administrator, MassHousing reviews and approves monthly owner/agent (OA) voucher payment requests.
Each month, OAs electronically transmit subsidy payment requests to the Agency for review. These requests include tenant record updates and a monthly payment requested amount.
Agency staff utilize software to review this information for program compliance. Tenant transactions that meet program compliance are uploaded into the Agency's database and monthly subsidy payments are calculated from this data.
Voucher amounts approved by the Agency are then transmitted to HUD's TRACS database for payment processing. When our monthly reviews are completed, Agency staff send OAs reports that list the tenant records used to approve payments for all assisted tenants, as well as information relating to the tenant records that were determined not to meet program standards.
