Public Housing and Section 8 Vouchers Local public housing authorities (PHAs) own and manage developments and administer Section 8 vouchers, which allow households to rent in the private market. Residents of units in developments and voucher holders generally pay 30% of adjusted income for rent and utilities. There is a minimum rent of between $25 and $50. Waiting lists exist for both types of subsidized housing. Applicants can apply for units and vouchers in more than one community. A PHA may have a preference list for the types of households that would be a priority for a unit or voucher. Who qualifies? Elderly (age 65 or older) Persons with disabilities Families who meet income guidelines For more information or to apply, please visit their website or call the number provided.

Hi I would be humble to receive help. I'm on workman's comp and I cannot afford my rent anymore so I'm homeless at the moment I have kids who I had to separate so they would be safe.
