James asks…

section 8 requirements florida?

what are the requirements for section 8, if you are married with a baby? one unemployed and the other working making less than 20k a year?

Administrator answers:

Section 8 in many counties/states is not open to new applications. If they are, it takes several years to get a voucher. The priority goes to seniors, disabled, disaster victims, homeless veterans, then low income families. Your income has to be below your county limits and I am sure $20,000 is but you have to be employed 32 hours a week if you are head of household.

Look at the HUD website under Section 8 for more details.

Lizzie asks…

Anybody familiar with eligibility requirements for section 8 in California?

My senior grandmother has been on the list for section 8, and her notice just came that she is next to receive a voucher after she fills out a boat load of forms. One of the forms says the following”

“authorization to obtain credit report, I authorize the housing authority to obtain my credit profile for purposes of determining my eligibility for the section 8 program”

Does this mean if her credit is bad that she won’t receive her section 8?

Administrator answers:

It could. But HUD requires a credit check on anyone receiving a section 8.
Most of these forms are just for records and I know there are a boat load of them and she will have to fill them out again next year and every year she receives assistance
Go ahead and authorize the credit check or you can be sure it will be denied

Carol asks…

What are income requirements for section 8 housing in Oklahoma?

I am curious to find out what the requirements are for assistance but don’t know where to look. I have two children and I am a single parent.

Administrator answers:

You should call the Department of Housing. It should be in the blue pages in your phone book under “State”. (It might also be listed as HUD)

I had a friend in Oklahoma City two years ago who was trying to get section 8 housing, and at that time the list was pretty long. I don’t know if that is still true, or if it’s true for other parts of the state.

Susan asks…

How do I find out income requirements for section 8 in wa state?

Administrator answers:

The income guidelines are established by your county Housing Authority, so you have to call them and find out. Although HUD is a federal agency, local counties and cities have their own housing guidelines for rent and income. They will tell you what the maximum allowable income for your family size is.
