The Housing Choice Voucher program is the federal government’s main program for helping very low-income families, the elderly and the disabled afford decent, safe housing in the private market. It was previously known as Section 8.

The program provides rental assistance payments to qualified landlords on behalf of eligible tenants. These vouchers make up the difference between the full rent and what the tenant’s income enables them to pay.
