Section 8 Details

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.
