What's the difference between Section 8 and subsidized Housing?
The term "subsidized housing", simply refers to housing programs (like section 8) that
are subsidized (funded by)HUD. Subsidized apartments for example, allow landlords to offer
lower rents to a low income tenant because HUD compensates the landlord for the rest of the
rent he or she normally would have charged for that particular area.
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.
