The housing office selects program participants from the program's existing waiting list. Once approved, the family or individual use their voucher to select a rental unit in the wide range of private market housing found in our community. The Owner can select or reject a prospective Section 8 tenant application, and is responsible for screening and approving a tenancy.

Eligible tenants selected for assistance are screened by the Housing Assistance office and must meet federal criteria:

  1. Tenant must be a "family" or eligible single person.
  2. Tenant household must be within annual Income limits established for program.
  3. All family members must furnish Social Security Numbers.
  4. At least one family member must be either a U.S. Citizen, national, or noncitizen with eligible immigration status.
  5. The Housing Assistance Office performs a criminal background check for all adult applicants. Current drug-related criminal activity or other criminal activity that is a threat to the health, safety or property of others will disqualify a family from participation in the program or may result in termination of assistance. A household that includes a member who is subject to lifetime registration as a sex offender under State law may not receive assistance under the program.
