Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8)
HHA's Section 8 department currently administers over 5,000 vouchers to eligible families. The families in the program have the choice and responsibility to select their own housing within HHA's jurisdiction. A rental subsidy is paid directly to the landlord on behalf of the participating family. The family pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program. A family generally pays 30% of their adjusted gross income in rent.
