About Section 8 Housing Assistance
Last-Modified: 2020-09-12 00:14:48
The Section 8 "Housing Choice Voucher" program helps make sure you can afford your apartment by paying a portion of your rent directly to your landlord on your behalf. But once you get the Section 8 subsidy, YOU have to find the landlord (although you may be able to use the Voucher in the apartment you already live in, if your landlord will agree to it). The share of the rent you pay is based on your income. Generally, you'll pay a little less than one-third of your income after taking out some deductions that are allowed. For more information, use the number provided to contact the agency.
