What are dollar homes?
Dollar homes are single-family homes that the Federal
Housing Administration (which is part of HUD) has aquired as a result of
auctions. These properties are made available through the

them after a six month period.
You can find more information on dollar homes and who can buy them in the Section 8 and Subsidized Housing Online Packet.
Your online packet also contains the Section 8 Consolidation Program application, which you can apply for online. This is a non federal program that awards grants to low income families or individuals.
Applicants can apply for the Section 8 Consolidation program online and or find listings of affordable housing in their area. They can also use their online packet to learn about lesser known government rental assistance programs and how, where and when to apply.
The Section 8 Consolidation Program combines low income grants with affordable housing opportunities that come in the form of listings in an online packet.
Section 8 housing voucher holders can user their online packet to retrieve listings of available Section 8 housing in their area, and apply for the Section 8 Consolidation program online.
Landlords can discover the benefits of participating in government subsidized housing programs, and they can also list their properties for free on this site (low income or otherwise).
