The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) is a federal organization that funds housing programs like the Housing Choice Voucher/Section 8 Voucher Program.
(1) Note for all Section 8 properties:
Public Housing Authorities (PHAs) are agencies that receive HUD funds for housing programs and administer housing programs locally.
The actual monthly payment amount is influenced by a number of factors
including the deduction of utility allowances, condition of the property, market comparisons, and any other policies of the local housing authority.
The figures above represent the highest
monthly dollar amount that HUD may
pay through Section 8.
Actual monthly rent must be approved by the housing authority prior to lease-up. Approval is based on federal rules and regulations, applicable rent limits and rent reasonableness. The requested rent must not exceed the rent for comparable, unassisted units on the open market.
Contact your local housing authority
for local details on payment standards as they may vary widely even within one city.
