Housing Choice Voucher Program
The Section 8 rental voucher program provides rental assistance to help very low income families afford decent, safe, and sanitary rental housing.
These programs are administered by local public housing agencies (PHAs) authorized under State law to operate housing programs within an area or jurisdiction. The PHA accepts the application for rental assistance, selects the applicant for admission, and issues the selected family a rental voucher confirming the family’s eligibility for assistance.
The family must then find and lease a dwelling unit suitable to the family's needs and desires in the private rental market. The PHA pays the owner a portion of the rent (a housing assistance payment (HAP)) on behalf of the family.
Project Based Voucher Program
The Section 8 Project-Based Moderate Rehabilitation Housing Assistance Programs were developed to increase the number of affordable housing units to low income families. Housing assistance is offered to eligible families who wish to live in privately owned multi-family developments that were upgraded or rehabilitated.
Upon being determined eligible, a family is given a choice of such rehabilitated sites available at the time their name is drawn from the waiting list. The family must choose from a list of sites available in order to receive housing assistance under this program. You may apply directly to the management of the following complexes. If you move into these units, you will not meet the preferences for the Section 8 Voucher Program but you will be assisted while you are living in the unit.
