Housing Choice Voucher Program Branding and Marketing Campaign

Project Overview

Following the successful launch of the organizational rebranding, the Housing Authority commissioned an integrated marketing campaign and communications plan for the Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV).  The nation’s largest rental assistance program, HCV helps low-income families, the elderly and the disabled rent decent, safe, and sanitary housing units in the private market. With public demand for rental units far exceeding capacity, the campaign targets qualified landlords, encouraging them to consider participation in the program by promoting the key benefits of HCV.

Limited testing of the creative was performed with representatives of the target audience. 

Research & Review


As part of the campaign development process, E. Holdings conducted interviews with current landlords to gather input on the current program marketing. Interviews were conducted one-on-one with landlords of varying number of properties to ensure equitable representation. The purpose of the interviews was to gather opinions on the current program marketing and on what improvements could be made.
