Where can you get a section 8 application forms?

a co-woker of mine is trying to get section 8 but don’t know where to look for the app so i told her i would try to look online but i cant find the form to print it out.

Administrator answers:

In most areas, applications for Sec 8 assistance are not available online, There are income requirements, as well as a host of other criteria which must be met to qualify for Sec 8 assistance.

You do not indicate in what area your friend is located, but DO be aware that most larger metro areas have lengthy waiting lists for applicants for Sec 8 assistance. Contrary to popular view, Sec 8 funds are not unlimited, and there are waiting lists in many areas. Some extend as far as five years.

Question about Project Based Section 8 Application Denial for work?

I am a leasing agent and I denied someone’s rental application for drug related criminal activity. They appealed the denial and brought proof of drug treatment counseling. Do I have to overturn that denial?

Administrator answers:

As long as they were convicted of the crime and your property has a no felony policy then no. They cannot claim their drug problem as a disability if that is what you are asking. You can deny them housing based on past criminal conviction. Criminal histroy is not a protected class.
