WELCOME TO THE HABD HOUSING CHOICE
VOUCHER (SEC8) PROGRAM!


The Section 8 rental assistance program is one of the federal government's major programs for helping very low income families obtain decent, safe, and sanitary housing. In the public housing program, HABD is the landlord. In the Section 8 Program, HABD provides families with financial assistance so that the family can afford a unit owned by a private landlord.

Section 8 families represent thousands of persons seeking affordable housing. HABD Section 8 funding currently represents over 4,000 families.

Our goal is to expand housing opportunities for Section 8 families in areas that have not traditionally participated in the Section 8 program. This goal also includes improving rental assistance in other quality, well-maintained residential and multi-unit neighborhoods.

Applications for Section 8 are taken only periodically. Public service announcements along with newspaper notices alert prospective participants of dates when
waiting list will be open.
