The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is available to very low income individuals and families. Rents are subsidized according to income rules and regulations established by the U.S. Department of Housing & Development. The tenant pays about 30% of gross income (certain Federal allowances can be deducted) towards rent and the subsidy makes up the difference. Very low income is defined as a family whose annual income is equal or below 50% of the area medium income.
