Am I eligible to apply for a Section 8 Voucher?

To apply for a Section 8 Voucher your gross family income must be below the maximum total income limit based family size. In general, a family's income may not exceed 50% of the median income for the county or metropolitan area (Fair Market Rent Area) in which the family chooses to live. Median income levels are published by HUD and vary by location so you may be eligible at one PHA but not at another.

Eligibility is limited to US citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status. Eligibility for a housing voucher is verified by a housing agency, typically when you reach the top of a waiting list.
