Your local housing authority probably has a website in which you can look up their procedures for putting your name on the waiting list. However you can apply at as many housing authorities as you wish. In addition many housing authorities will have forms that you can download off of their web site to print, fill out, and mail or fax to the Housing Authority. (MORE)

HUD is a federal agency that was created to ensure that everyone would have housing regardless of ability to pay.

There's really no such thing as section 8 housing. Either the landlord takes section 8, which means that they are willing to be paid by the government a portion of the rent on behalf of the tenant, or the landlord doesn't participate in such program. In this scenario the property is not considered s…ection a property: it can be considered conventional property or what is known as a low income housing tax credit property, or LIHTC. This type of property is one that the landlord has taken out a low interest loan subsidized by the federal government, in exchange for tax credits and other benefits if they allow low income residents to rent from them. Another Perspective Rental properties where the owners participate in section 8 housing programs are informally referred to as "section 8 housing". A person who is looking for an apartment and sees one at a reasonable price may ask a friend in that neighborhood if the unit is in a section 8 housing facility. You could ask neighbors if the facility where you live accepts section 8 housing clients. You could also call the landlord or rental office and ask. (MORE)

Other seriousfelonies disqualify a person if the offense was committed withinfive years of the date they were released from prison or othersanction. (MORE)
