Our The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program provides rental assistance payments directly to a participating landlord. These payments are provided under a contract executed between the Public Housing Agency (Terrebonne Parish Consolidated Government) and the landlord on behalf of an eligible participant. The purpose of this contract is to guarantee that eligible participants reside in decent, safe, and sanitary housing. The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is not an emergency program. It is as an ongoing program that provides rental assistance through a contract executed with a participating landlord for a one-year period. This contract can be renewed annually provided all criteria for recertification is satisfied. Clients are served from a waiting list. New names are taken for the waiting list only when it is anticipated that the clients currently on the list will be served. The waiting list is opened after public notification. A new catalyst to be used will be the TPCG website in addition to the normal avenues of publication. There are currently three (3) components of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program being administered by this Division. The components are: Housing Choice Vouchers Family Self-Sufficiency Single Room OccupancyHousing Choice VoucherThe Housing Choice Voucher Program provides rental assistance to eligible households through the issuance of a voucher for participation. There are 512 Vouchers on this program. Family Self-SufficiencyThe Family Self-Sufficiency Program (FSS) provides eligible Section 8 families with an opportunity to achieve economic independence and self-sufficiency by combining housing assistance with other public and private resources. There are 23 slots allocated within the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program to implement the Family Self-Sufficiency component.

Do they offer emergency cash to pay rent?

Answer:
No they do not offer emergency cash... In fact, you cannot even apply for assistance unless they are accepting applications and they only do so every few years... It's completely barbaric.
