U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development offers the housing choice voucher program (Section 8). The 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. Everyone is not able to receive help or assistance. If you are interested in applying for a voucher please contact your local PHA. Links are provided below.
*There are waiting lists for Public Housing*. Since the demand for housing assistance often exceeds the limited resources available to HUD and the local housing agencies, long waiting periods are common. In fact, a PHA may close its waiting list when it has more families on the list than can be assisted in the near future.
