WHAT IS THE SECTION 8 HOUSING VOUCHER PROGRAM?
The Housing Choice Vouchers Program (often referred to as “Section 8”) is the federal government’s primary program to provide housing for Americans who are living in poverty, as well as the elderly and disabled. It provides eligible families with assistance in paying the monthly rent for houses and apartments that are located anywhere, not just in subsidized housing projects. Section 8 is administered by the Local Housing Authorities. They qualify tenants and certify residences for participation in the program.
