Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8)

  • Listed: January 13, 2019 7:04 pm
  • Expires: 998990 days, 5 hours

Description

Program Description

The housing choice voucher program provides assistance to very low-income families to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing. Housing can include single-family homes, townhouses and apartments and is not limited to units located in subsidized housing projects.

Program Requirements

Housing choice vouchers are administered locally by Public Housing Agencies (PHAs). A family that is issued a housing voucher is responsible for finding a suitable housing unit of the family’s choice where the owner agrees to rent under the program. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the PHA on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.

Application Process

If you are interested in applying for a voucher, contact the local PHA:
