8 : Their Choice >>>

Eligible households are issued a Section 8/HCVP Voucher. The family is then given up to 120 days to locate their own rental housing, which can be located anywhere in the country, or they can elect to remain in their current unit provided it meets program requirements. Rental units must meet minimum standards of health and safety. The rent for the unit must be reasonable in comparison to rents charged for similar, unassisted apartments in the area. A rental subsidy is paid directly to the landlord on behalf of the participating family by the housing agency. The subsidy is determined by the family's income. The family pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the Section 8 program.

Housing Choice Vouchers are administered locally by the Public Housing Authority in each community. RIHousing serves as the authority in many communities, including those cities and towns that do not have their own.

The CDA pays a portion of the rent for about 1,600 households through the federally funded Housing Choice Voucher program; also known as Section 8. The CDA pays over $11 million each year to Madison housing providers on behalf of their low income tenants. About 500 Madison landlords participate in the program.

If an applicant is placed on the wait list (one of the 7,000 that will be randomly selected), once they are contacted for a housing opportunity, they will be asked to provide up to date information that will assist in verifying their eligibility to receiving housing assistance. At least one family member listed on the application must be a U.S. citizen or legal immigrant to be eligible to receive a voucher.

The new web-based tool, Affordable Housing, allows landlords to list an unlimited number of properties, which subsequently gives tenants immediate access to housing opportunities that fit their needs and that is within their search preferences for housing. Try the new tool at Affordable Housing.

Everyone should be able to qualify for mortgages they can afford based on their stable income. Our reminder to mortgage lenders should help people who receive Section 8 HCV Homeownership Program vouchers receive fair and equal access to credit.

The federally funded Section 8 Program provides for rental subsidies to be paid directly to landlords on behalf of income eligible families and primarily elderly, disabled or handicapped individuals. The subsidy is "invisible" so that households receiving assistance are not identified and can remain anonymous within the community. Landlords are also assured of regular payments from the Section 8 program on behalf of the tenant.Eligible participants receive a Housing Choice Voucher which entitles them to search for a rental unit. A contract to pay subsidies is signed between the City and the owner once the rental unit and the lease are approved. Annual income eligibility re-examinations are required for the family to determine their share of the rent and an annual inspection is required to determine that the unit remains in a decent, safe and sanitary condition.

A.12 You may apply as long as you meet the income and eligibility requirements. However if you do not currently live on Oahu and are offered a housing choice voucher from us, you will have to lease a place on Oahu for the initial minimum term.

A.15 Approximately 40-50% of families currently being processed off the waitlist have stated that they intend to rent their current unit. A big factor in renting a new place is the requirement for a security deposit. Section 8 does not provide a deposit so families must rely on savings or assistance from family to provide the deposit.
