Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program - District of Columbia
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. What is often referred to as a HUD application, is actually for the Voucher Program or low income housing.
The The Section 8 and Subsidized Housing Online Packet has consolidated updated links low income housing applications and the allocation of low income grants to eligible applicants. The low income grants issued are intended to be used for household needs by a family or an individual, such as groceries or childcare. The Section 8 Consolidation Program is funded by a private entity and is not affiliated with any government agency. This program provides equal opportunity to all applicants to receive low income assistance in the form of a small assistance grant.
The housing opportunities are provided to all members in the form of an online packet.
