      What is difference between Section 8 and Public Housing and how can I apply in Texas?

      Public housing is usually a situation where the tenant can live in an apartment complex that is owned by a Texas housing authority in this instance. These situations can vary but public housing was established to provide decent and safe rental assistance for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. There are approximately 1.2 million households living in public housing units, managed by some 3,300 HAs. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to local housing agencies (HAs) that manage the housing for low-income residents at rents they can afford. HUD furnishes technical and professional assistance in planning, developing and managing these developments.

      Public housing is limited to low-income families and individuals. An HA determines your eligibility based on: 1) annual gross income; 2) whether you qualify as elderly, a person with a disability, or as a family; and 3) U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status. If you are eligible, the HA will check your references to make sure you and your family will be good tenants. HAs will deny admission to any applicant whose habits and practices may be expected to have a detrimental effect on other tenants or on the project's environment. Keep in mind that an application for Public housing is not an application for Section 8. They are two separate rental assistance programs.

      Section 8 rental assistance, also referred to as the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program, allows the tenant to choose their own house or apartment. With Public housing, it is usually limited to apartment complexes that are affiliated with the housing authority. The housing choice voucher program is the Federal government's major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses and apartments. The participant is free to choose any housing that meets the requirements of the program and is not limited to units located in subsidized housing projects. Housing choice vouchers are administered locally by public housing agencies (PHAs). The PHAs receive federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer the voucher program. The term low income housing encompasses a variety of scenarios. A what people refer to as a low income housing application usually pertains to both Section 8 and Public housing but is not the official name for either program. A family that is issued a housing voucher is responsible for finding a suitable housing unit of the family's choice where the owner agrees to rent under the program. This unit may include the family's present residence. Rental units must meet minimum standards of health and safety, as determined by the PHA. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the PHA on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program. Under certain circumstances, if authorized by the PHA, a family may use its voucher to purchase a modest home.
