section 8

Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program

Section 8 is a rental assistance program that is intended to provide low and moderate income families and individuals with descent, safe, sanitary housing at a monthly rent that they can afford.

Those who qualify for the Section 8 Program will not pay more than 30% of their income in rent.  This also depends on the subsidy.  This is accomplished by Federal Government Programs that help subsidize the cost of building these projects so that owners can charge a lower monthly rent.   A more direct subsidy is paid monthly to cover the difference of what the eligible tenant can afford and the contract rent that is charged.
