What is the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program?

The housing choice voucher program is the federal government’s major program for assisting low-income families, the elderly and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market.

Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses and apartments.
