Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section8)

What is the  Housing Choice Voucher Program?

The Section 8 (Housing Choice Voucher) Program is a federal funded program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. The participant is free to choose any housing that meets the requirements of the program. Housing choice vouchers are administered locally by public housing agencies (PHAs). The PHAs receive federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer the voucher program.

Who may apply?

Have you been a previous resident of EPHA or another housing authority and do not have an outstanding balance with that program?

 

Applications may be any type from families whose head or spouse is at least 18 years of age or an emancipated minor. A family can be a single person, a group of persons who intend to share residency and disabled or elderly. An applicant must be income-eligible and a citizen or a non-citizen who has eligible immigration status.

How does the program work for a family?

After qualifying for the program, a family that is issued a housing voucher is responsible for finding a suitable housing unit of the family’s choice where the owner agrees to rent under the program. This unit may include the family’s present residence.

Rental units must meet minimum standards of health and safety, as determined by the PHA. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the PHA on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.
