Section 8 Participants

The Housing Authorities offers subsidies through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP).  HCVP is a federally funded rental assistance program designed to help low income families, senior citizens, and people with disabilities afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing. The program provides subsidies to qualified households for use in private housing in the community of their choice. Under the Section 8 Program, households initially pay 30%-40% of their gross income towards the rent plus utilities and the Federal Government pays the difference between that amount and the approved contract rent amount.
