Section 8 is a federal rent assistance program, also known as the Housing Choice Voucher Program. Section 8 is the federal government’s largest program to help low-income families, seniors, and people with disabilities pay for safe, decent housing. Section 8 includes tenant-based vouchers, project-based vouchers, and homeownership vouchers. Section 8 usually refers to the Section 8 tenant-based voucher program.
Section 8 tenant-based vouchers are rent vouchers that let people choose their own housing anywhere they want to live. The vouchers are not limited to particular housing developments like project-based vouchers. People with Section 8 tenant-based vouchers can choose any apartment they want, as long as the rent is reasonable and the unit is safe and clean.
Section 8 tenant-based vouchers are sometimes called mobile vouchers because they “travel” with the tenant. If a household with a tenant-based voucher wants to move, they can use the voucher for a different rental unit.
