What is the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program?

The Section 8 Rental Assistance Program is a federally funded program which assists people in paying their rent and utilities.  People determined eligible will have part of their rent paid each month by the Oklahoma City Housing Authority.  Persons determined eligible for the program will receive a Housing Choice Voucher to lease a dwelling unit of their choice within the Oklahoma City limits.

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.

Special programs are offered to our Section 8 participants that want to have and enjoy a better quality of life for themselves and their families.  These programs include the Family Self-Sufficiency Program and Section 8 Homeownership Program.  There are also programs designed to assist participants and their families with special needs or disabilities: Family Unification Program, Non-elderly Persons with Disabilities for Designated Housing, Mainstream Program for Persons with Disabilities, Fair Share Program, Project Access, and the Single Room Occupancy Program.
