Housing Choice Voucher Program

 

 

 

The Waiting List for the Section 8 Program is currently closed.

Current applicants can view their waiting list status/position here. Do not call the Lincoln Housing Authority office for your position.

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is a federal program, which assists very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled in affording quality housing in the private rental market.  Housing assistance payments are provided on behalf of the family or individual, subsidizing the cost so participants can find affordable rental housing.

Voucher Program participants are free to select any housing that meets the program requirements, and they are not limited to units located in subsidized housing projects.  Rental units are required to meet minimum standards of health and safety.  Housing Choice Vouchers are portable, which means participating families may move anywhere within the United States or its territories and still receive assistance, provided that the local housing authority is accepting vouchers.

The Lincoln Housing Authority administers 124 vouchers, supported by funds from the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The family or individual receiving the voucher is responsible for finding a suitable unit whose owner is willing to participate in the program.  The assistance payment is paid directly to the participating landlord on behalf of the Section 8 tenant.  The family or individual pays the remaining difference between the actual rent and the subsidy amount.

If you are a landlord and would like more information, contact the LHA’s Housing Choice Voucher Coordinator at claudia@lincolnhousing.org
