Section 8 or Plan 8 Low Income Rental Voucher Program


Section 8 or Plan 8

Section 8 or Plan 8 is a housing subsidy for low-income families and individuals. The funding comes from Housing and Urban Development HUD and your local Public Housing Authorities PHA.

These are the government agencies that will generally administer the programs. Section 8 Programs can be designated in state, county, city, or metropolitan regions.

Sec8 Logo for Low Income Housing
There are many types of Section 8 programs available; however, the programs which most property owners are likely to encounter are vouchers and certificates.

Vouchers are not an entitlement and only a small percentage of eligible applicants receive them. Most are put on a waiting list when they apply. Recipients may select any housing with rent at or below the 'fair market rent' set by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development HUD, if the owner agrees to accept the voucher as payment. The family pays 30 percent of its income toward rent and utilities.

What is expected of a Landlord?

If you wish to rent to Section 8 Voucher holders, you should inform the local Housing Authority of the availability of your property and also indicate in your advertising that you welcome Section 8 Voucher holders. Ultimately, it is the voucher holder's decision whether or not to rent your property. Of course, as the landlord, you would screen the Section 8 voucher holder just as you would any other prospective tenant.

The landlord must meet basic sanitary and safety requirements such as providing functioning bathrooms, a kitchen or area for preparing food, locking doors, secure windows and smoke detectors.


How do I find Section 8 Participants?


Section 8 tenants may find you just by responding to your ad or 'For Rent' sign. Otherwise, contact your local PHA or the HUD office in your area. Typically, you will exchange information and then the PHA will add your property to their list of available rentals or you can upload your property information onto several web sites that specialize listing Section 8 or Plan Ocho properties.
