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 through the use of federal funds. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to 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.
