Housing Choice Vouchers

The Housing Choice Voucher Program or “Section 8” housing can help you pay the rent for safe and clean properties that are privately-owned.

You are free to choose any housing that meets program requirements and you aren’t limited to units located in subsidized housing projects.

Frequently Asked Questions

Program Benefits Am I eligible? How do I apply?

This program (also known as Section 8) may provide some or all of your rent for a privately owned unit. Because you can add your own money to the rent amount from the government, this program allows you more freedom to choose where you live.

You may be eligible for this program if:

  • You are part of a low-income household (as determined by your Public Housing Agency) or are elderly or disabled
  • You are a U.S. citizen or have certain eligible immigration status

Contact your local Public Housing Agency for information about applying. They can tell you if there is a waiting list to get benefits under this program. They can also give you a list of landlords that accept voucher payments and some guidelines to follow in looking for a place to live.
