How To Apply For Low Income and Section 8 Housing

Low Income Housing Map

Section 8 Housing, officially known as the Housing Choice Voucher Program, is a rental housing assistance program provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) since 1937 to assist low-income families in securing affordable and suitable housing. This program allows families to choose their or own housing which may include single-family dwellings, townhomes, or apartment units.

Though HUD provides the funding for the Housing Choice Voucher Program, the vouchers are administered on a state level by public housing agencies (PHAs). These public housing agencies determine your eligibility and the amount of assistance. They are also responsible for making the rental assistant payments on behalf of the family to participating landlords.

To apply for a voucher or to find out about other housing assistance programs you must visit the PHA serving your community or contact your local HUD office. To find the local PHA closest to you, visit the official web site of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Because there is a great demand for housing assistance and limited federal funding, long waiting periods are common.
