Housing Choice Voucher

The Housing Choice Voucher Program, also known as Section 8, is federally funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).

Applicants must meet very low income limits as set forth by HUD. Applicants search for a unit in the private market and it is the responsibility of the landlord to check applicants for rental suitability.

Applicants become program participants when they lease a unit and utilize the Section 8 Voucher. First year participants can pay up to 40% of their adjusted income in rent and the Section 8 program subsidizes the balance. After leasing a unit for one year participants are eligible to relocate anywhere in the United States that administers a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.
