Section 8 is a housing program to help lower income families, senior citizens and disabled persons rent decent, safe and sanitary housing at a lower cost. Many households qualify for assistance; however, help can be given to you only if you have been issued a Housing Choice Voucher. Your initial rent will be no more than 40% of your gross adjusted income, at the time you first lease a unit.
Funding for this program is made available through the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Please see the HUD Fact Sheet on Section 8 Housing Vouchers
for more information.
