Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program
The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program assists income eligible residents of Broward County to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private rental market. Families are able to find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses and apartments.
A family that is issued a housing voucher is responsible for finding a suitable housing unit of their choice where the owner agrees to rent under the Housing Choice Voucher Program. Rentals must meet the HUD established Housing Quality Standards and the rent must be equivalent to comparable market units.
To be eligible, one must:
• Meet income guidelines
• Pass a criminal background check (Adult family members must have no record within the last five years of any drug related or violent criminal activity).
• Have at least one family member who is a U.S. Citizen or has eligible Immigration status.
