When an applicant obtains a Section 8 voucher, they are able to choose where they want to live. As long as the dwelling in question meets certain code requirements that are mandated by the housing authority, the tenant will only pay about 30% of their rent. The Voucher Program pays the rest. The application process is always free.
Public Housing is a situation where the applicant can move into a rent controlled complex that is owned by the Montpelier Vermont housing authority. The tenant will still pay about 30% of their monthly income towards rent, but can not choose to live in an independently owned house or apartment.
