Section 8

COVID-19 News You Can Use

Are you a Section 8 Voucher Holder who is struggling to pay your portion of rent?

If your rent is partially paid by a Section 8 voucher, and your income has changed due to a COVID-19 layoff, or reduction in hours, you may be eligible for an immediate interim change in status. You may also request assistance with a utility allowance. Contact the housing authority that administers your voucher and request a "Change of Income" form. You may also be able to submit your income change on-line.

Keep in mind, many local housing authorities have reduced staffing due to COVID-19. For details about your housing authority, go directly to their website for updates.
