Mary asks…

Can you go over your section 8 voucher limit??

Can a person with a section 8 voucher go over their limit and just pay the difference of what section 8 pays??

Administrator answers:

Families who participate in the program must abide by a series of rules and regulations, often referred to as “family obligations,” in order to maintain their voucher, including accurately reporting all changes in household income so the amount of their subsidy can be updated accordingly.

You need to check with your local HUD.
