What is the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8)? 

The Section 8 Program is a rental assistance program that assists very low-income families with their rent in the private market. The voucher program increases affordable housing choices for very low-income households by allowing families to choose privately owned rental housing. The family may choose a unit with a higher rent than the fair market rent (FMR), however, the rent must be reasonable. The rules and regulations of the housing choice voucher program (HCV) are determined by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
