Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Purpose of this program:

To aid very low income families in obtaining decent, safe, and sanitary rental housing. For Welfare-to-Work rental vouchers, families must also meet special welfare-to-work criteria. HUD regulations merged the former Section 8 Rental Voucher program (14.855) with the former Section 8 Certificate program (14.857). Section 502 of the Public Housing Reform Act states that a purpose of the legislation is "consolidating the voucher and certificate programs for rental assistance under Section 8 of the United States Housing Act of 1937 (the "USHA") into a single market-driven program that will assist in making tenant-based rental assistance more successful at helping low-income families obtain affordable housing and will increase housing choice for low-income families."
