Housing Choice Voucher Tenants
The Housing Choice Voucher program (commonly known as Section 8) helps people with low incomes rent homes on the private market.
Most households pay 30%, or up to 40% (in the first year) of their adjusted monthly income for rent and utilities and agree to abide by rules and regulations in order to remain in compliance with the program and keep their rental assistance. EHA then pays the remainder of the monthly rent directly to the landlord. All subsidized units must meet and maintain certain standard levels of housing quality and maintenance.
