Section 8 Program
The Section 8 Program is a federal rent subsidy which assists participants with monthly rental payments. The Section 8 Program is to ensure that the families have a safe, decent and sanitary place to live. The OCHA administers funds received from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (U.S. HUD) and distributes them in the form of Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers to eligible families and individuals.
A Voucher allows participating households (tenants) to rent housing that meets their needs. The tenant pays a portion of the rent directly to the landlord. OCHA pays the landlord the difference between the tenant's portion of the rent and the total rental amount.
