Where can I apply for Section 8 online?
In order to apply for Section 8 online you must first find a housing authority that has an open waiting list. Most housing authorities must close their waiting lists because of the overwhelming demand for rental assistance. Sometimes it can take 6 months or several years for an applicant to come up on a waiting list.
Do I qualify to apply for Section 8 rental assistance?
Housing authority preferences can vary because of the different economic levels across the country. If your income is 20% less than the median income of your region. According to 2007 figures if you are a single person family and your income is around $59,400 per annum then you come under the low-income group. The per annum figure increases with the number of members in the family. If there are two members in your family then your family falls under the low-income group if your family income per annum is $67,900. If there are five people in your family then a family income of $91,605 qualifies you as the low-income group family. So there are different numbers for different families.
Remember, in order to apply for Section 8 online in Los Angeles or anywhere else, you must meet the qualifications mandated by HUD and your local housing authority. A Section 8 application can be obtained when applications are being accepted by your local housing authority. Housing authorities usually post their Section 8 application online to avoid an overwhelming turn out and long lines.
