Linda asks…


I have a house for rent and wanting to know what the requirements are to pass for section8 housing

Administrator answers:

Every county is different, you need to call them and ask for the inspection sheet, they can email you a copy.

Generally the house has to be safe, free of hazards and all of the appliances must work. Some counties require screens on the windows, window treatments (curtains or blinds), and that all windows open and lock. There are no federal standards, the feds let each county decide what is required in their area.

Ken asks…

whats section 8 and what are the requirements?

and if you’re going directly from puerto rico to a state can you apply to section 8 with no income at all?

Administrator answers:

Section 8 usually refers to government assistance apartment living. Section 8 goes according to your income. You bring in a pay stub or some other proof of your monthly income. A percentage is then determined from your income ( usually 33%). This is what you will pay each month in rent. There are income limits, as these apartments are for those whose income falls in the low category. If you make more than the highest limit, you will not be allowed to live there.

Charles asks…

How can I obtain section 8 in Nevada? Where do I apply? what are the requirements?

I am a mother, will be homeless in a few days. Need help finding a safe place for my baby and I. Please help with any information you may have on section 8. Any information on how to get assistance for a place to live in would be appreciated.

Administrator answers:

Since you have a baby the only other requirements are that you work at least 32 hours a week and you collect child support.

You apply with the housing authority, but it will be YEARS before your turn to live off the public comes up.

There are homeless shelters that you can live in for up to 3 months. The Salvation Army can direct you to the one closest to your job.
