In the Housing Choice Voucher Program, commonly known as “Section 8”, Homes for
Good provides rental assistance to low-income families accessing a home through the
private rental market. To do this, Homes for Good forms a connection between families
and landlords. Through the Housing Choice Voucher Program, families maintain secure,
quality housing in neighborhoods of their choice.
Under Section 8, Homes for Good pays a fixed amount toward the rent, based on the
household income and the applicable payment standard set by the agency. Participants
are responsible for finding a suitable unit that:
Has a gross rent amount that falls within the determined rent limits.
Can pass a Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspection.
