Housing Choice Voucher Program

The Housing Choice Voucher Program, (sometimes referred to as “Section 8”) provides rental assistance to low income families in the private rental market. Funded at the Federal level through the U. S.  Department of Housing and Urban Development, rent subsidies (vouchers) allow families to pay a reasonable share of their income toward rent while the program, within specific limits, makes up the difference.

We are not accepting applications for the Housing Choice Voucher Program at this time.
