Safe, affordable housing for families is a main focus for Skyline’s housing programs and services, which are offered in Greene, Madison and Orange counties.
The Virginia Rent Relief Program (RRP) is designed to support and ensure housing stability in Virginia during the coronavirus pandemic. Depending on availability of funds and household need, the RRP may provide financial assistance for rent payments for eligible households. This includes financial assistance for rent payments past due beginning April 1, 2020 and onward with the opportunity for renewal based on availability of funding and the household’s need for additional assistance and continued eligibility. This assistance does not have to be repaid.

Housing Choice Voucher Program
Skyline CAP, Inc. helps provide safe and affordable rental housing to qualifying families and individuals through the Housing Choice Voucher Program in partnership with the Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA). The program provides a tenant-based voucher that allows households to rent housing where they desire if the home meets certain health and safety codes as determined by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The voucher pays a rental subsidy and the tenant pays the remainder.
Eligibility for the Housing Choice Voucher Program is primarily based on income. Seniors and disabled persons are given preference. Households must certify their income every year for continued program participation. To find out if you meet income eligibility requirements in Skyline’s service area, please refer to these guidelines.
The Housing Choice Voucher program is not currently accepting applications. If you would like to be placed on the waiting list, you MUST apply online with Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA). Skyline cannot accept your application directly.
