How do I apply for Section 8 in Louisiana?

The process to apply for Section 8 in Louisiana is the same as it is in every state. An applicant must first find out if they are considered to be of a low income status mandated by HUD. Income levels may vary from state to state. Then the applicant has to find an open Section 8 waiting list in order to fill out a Section 8 application for rental assistance. Typically, a Section 8 waiting list can be very long, particularly for large cities. The Department of Housing and Urban Development, or HUD, is the Federal agency that oversees the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. HUD also funds this program as well as other subsidized housing and rental assistance programs like Public Housing. Most people that need help with their rent refer to the Section 8 rental assistance program first. Housing authorities have to close their Section 8 waiting list closed when a voucher quota has been reached. Sometimes there simply isn't enough funding to accommodate all of the people in the community that are in need of this type of assistance. When there is more funding provided by HUD, the housing authority can reopen their waiting list and begin accepting Section 8 applications again. It is always free to apply for any government subsidized housing program. Our Online Packet can assist you in finding applications and apply for Section 8 online when applications are being accepted.

What is the process to become a Section 8 landlord in Louisiana?

In order to become a Section 8 landlord, one must first have the necessary inspections by their Housing Authority and has been approved to rent to a Section 8 tenant. The Section 8 program produces renters in every state that need available apartments. 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. When someone wants to apply for HUD, or any subsidized housing program, the key is to be aware of when there will be an open Section 8 waiting list.

Landlords must have their property inspected by a division of the 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 section 8 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. You can apply for Section 8 by completing a Section 8 application when those applications are being accepted by the Louisiana Housing Authority.
