About Lancaster County Housing Authority and Redevelopment Authority

Last-Modified: 2020-02-29 01:29:49

The Lancaster County Housing Authority administers the Housing Choice Voucher ("Section 8") rental assistance program in Lancaster County, outside the Lancaster City limits. Under the program, income-eligible tenants pay a minimum of thirty percent (30%) of their monthly incomes for rent and utilities and the Lancaster County Housing Authority pays the remaining portion of the rent. Tenants are given a housing voucher and they are responsible for locating a suitable rental unit. The landlord must agree to participate in the Program. All types of rental housing (single family homes, apartments, duplexes, and mobile homes) are eligible as long as the rent is reasonable in comparison to the fair market rent limits established by US Department of Housing and Urban Development and the unit is decent, safe, and sanitary. Any units for which a household receives rental assistance must pass an annual inspection to ensure that the unit is safe and decent.

My father is terminally ill. He is home at the moment. I am caring for him before he is moved to hospice. When he passes I will not be able to afford this place alone. Is there anyway to be put on a list for help? I am scared I will be homeless with my service dog.

They have no assistance. There's more than 89 homeless people sleeping outside of the Lanc government center now. The city's 211 services are the worst! Dont come to Lancaster thinking there is help here you will sleep on the street with your children. 7/2020 .

They lied and said my landlord didn't submit all of his paperwork together we submitted everything. Then lied AGAIN saying they sent denial letters, they NEVER did. This place DOES NOT actually HELP people who NEED it. A very Pathetic establishment. Guarantee they helped all those who purposely didn't pay their rent with that extra unemployment because they knew they didn't have too. All prayers out to everyone whose still in legitimate circumstances that they got denied by these people when they shouldn't have.

There isn't help for someone on disability. No section 8, no help from the city or county. Even the governor doesn't know what's going on
