Housing Choice Vouchers: a brief explanation

A long-overdue definition has been added to the glossary: Housing Choice Vouchers! A quick explanation of the program that dominates the politics of housing. The term voucher is often used, but rarely explained. And HUD’s glossary definition, “the federal government’s major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market” is, in my opinion, too vague to be helpful. So read through my take on the term, and let me know what other programs, policies, or populations you would like to see defined.
