Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is a program that subsidizes the rent of low-income families, elderly and disabled using federal funds. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants can find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses, and apartments. Under the Section 8 Housing Choice Program, a tenant may select a unit that rents for the amount determined to be comparable to other unassisted units in the area and which would result in the family paying no more than 40% of its adjusted monthly income towards the rent and utilities.
