The Housing Choice Voucher Program (formerly known as Section 8) is the Federal Government’s major program for assisting low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses and apartments. The participant is free to choose housing that meets their needs such as location to schools, jobs, transportation, and shopping.
A family is issued a Housing Voucher and is responsible for finding a suitable housing unit of the family’s choice where the owner agrees to rent under the program. This unit may include the family’s present residence. Rental units must meet Housing Quality Standards as determined by the FWHA. You can search for available housing via the buttons below.
