Section 8 Housing          The SHA is currently accepting applications for the Section 8 centralized wait list.

Section 8 Housing is the federal government's major program for assisting very low income families, the elderly, and the disabled to rent decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market.  Since the housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to find and rent privately owned housing, including single-family homes, townhouses, and apartments.  The participant is free to choose any housing that meets the requirements of the program and is not limited to units located in subsidized housing projects. Section 8 oversees One Thousand Thirty four (1034) units of Affordable Housing through the Housing Authority.

For the convenience of those currently in the Section 8 Program, we maintain a current listing of one, two, three, four and five bedroom units.
