What is the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program?
The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is a federally funded program which provides rental assistance to individuals with low income. Eligible Participants will have part of their rent paid each month based on their income and will receive a Housing Choice Voucher to lease a dwelling unit of their choice within the Oklahoma City limits. Eligible Participants may receive assistance with utilities in the form of Housing Assistance Payments.
Section 8 is a free-choice approach to assisted housing. You are free to choose any type dwelling unit as long as it meets certain requirements for rent limits, rent reasonableness and Housing Quality Standards (HQS). The landlord retains private property rights, including management, tenant selection and maintenance. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) determines the rules and regulations for the Section 8 Program.
The Family Self-Sufficiency Program is a special program offered to our Section 8 participants that want to have and enjoy a better quality of life for themselves and their families. There are also programs designed to assist participants and their families with special needs or disabilities: Family Unification Program, Mainstream Program for Persons with Disabilities, Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing, Village at Oakwood, Pershing Center, and the Single Room Occupancy Program.
Am I Eligible?
Eligibility is determined by family size, and gross (amount before any taxes or deductions) annual income for the family. You may be eligible as an individual or a family if your gross annual income does not exceed income guidelines established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). There are no minimum income requirements.
