How does the Section 8 rental assistance program work?
The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program is a government subsidized housing assistance program for a low income family or individual. The tenant will pay about 30% of their monthly income for rent. Section 8 will pay for (subsidize) the rest. Landlords must have their property inspected by the Boston housing authority in
order to rent to a Section 8 tenant and accept the Section 8 housing voucher. The landlord will prepare their own lease, but it will be no less than for one year.
By urging landlords nationwide to participate in government rental assistance programs, and educating them about subsidized housing, the gap between a low income tenant and an independent landlord is being reduced.
