What is Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program?
Section 8 is a federally funded rent supplement program that is designed to help families find safe and sanitary housing in the private market, and to help those families with the cost of rent and utilities.
Under these programs, the family pays between 30 to 40 percent of its adjusted income or a minimum fee for rent and utilities. JCHA pays the difference directly to the landlord. Property in this program must meet HUD quality standards and must pass an inspection conducted by a JCHA inspector.
