What is a Section 8 house or a Section 8 Apartment?
The terms Section 8 apartment, Section 8 housing or Section 8 houses basically mean the same thing, except for the dwelling type. These are terms people use when they are referring to an independent Section 8 landlord that has had the necessary inspections and repairs done to their property that will allow them to accept a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher. This is a form of subsidized housing.
On the average, a subsidized housing tenant will only pay about %30 of their monthly income (may vary). The rest will be "subsidized" by that particular housing program.
There are a lot of subsidized housing programs, the Section 8 program is only one of them. If you would like to learn more about these programs and how or where to apply, order the Section 8 and Subsidized Housing Online Packet.
Your Online Packet also includes the Section 8 Consolidation program application. You can apply for this independently owned grant program online.
Applicants can apply for the Section 8 Consolidation program online and be considered to receive a grant if they are of low income. They can also use their Online Packet to learn about lesser known federal rental assistance programs like Section 8 housing and how, where and when to apply.
