Do you have to already live in the state your applying for section 8 housing?
Do state housing authorities ever investigate section 8 frauds and what percentage is found fraudelent?
You live in Alabama and considering moving to Florida can you apply for section 8 housing even though you do not have job yet since you are relocating?
You can still apply for section 8. Don't forget that if you live in a different state than the one from which you are applying for a voucher, you will have to live for at least one year in the jurisdiction that issued the voucher. Most housing authorities have a minimum amount of rent each tenant is required to pay, regardless of income or lack thereof. That amount is usually about $50 per month.
Check with you local housing authority for a section 8 housing choice voucher. You should also check with the Michigan State Housing Development Authority: Address: 735 E. Michigan Ave P.O. Box 30044 Lansing, Michigan 48909 Telephone: (517) 373-8370 Fax: (517) 335-4797 TTY#: 1-800-382-4568 They can provide you with a list of properties that are multifamily section 8.
I am on section 8 and will be moving and was wondering what area City of Fort Lauderdale Housing Authority covers compared to Broward County Housing Authority?
if you have a housing choice voucher, you can ask the housing authority about the portability option and you can move to anywhere in the state with your voucher. I would also contact North Tampa Housing Development Corporation for a list of the various multi family section 8 developments in Broward county. (there are a lot of very nice properties)
The basic question is "Can a convicted felon get section 8 housing?" Whether he is on probation or a college student does not matter. The answer is yes and no, depending on what the conviction is for, how old the conviction is, and whether the felon has to register as a sex offender in the state he is residing in.
Regardless of what state you're in, the section 8 program is the same: its comprised of either public housing or a voucher that guarantees that the landlord will be paid a portion of the rent for a tenant who qualifies in the program, minus the tenant's portion of the rent, which is determined upon commencement of the program.
Section 8 is a federally created and supported program that is operated by individual state Public Housing Agencies (PHA), sometimes listed at "Housing Authority." Once you have applied and have qualified, you will be placed on a list for a voucher. It may take months or years to obtain a voucher, depending on your area. You can apply to several housing authorities though.
You need to contact the office in your county and state that accepts Section 8 applications. The agency is typically The Housing Authority. You will fill out an application and supply proofs for county of birth, citizenship, family members and ages, income, etc. Only after filling out your application and the agency verifying your information are you placed on their Section 8 housing list.
This will depend on one, whether or not you live in public housing (section 8/HUD) and two, what state you are in. If you live in public housing, VAWA allows you to break your lease without any penalties. If you are not in public housing, this will depend on your state. You may want to call the National Domestic Violence Hotline. They can direct you to an advocacy group in your state that can help…
Can you still live in your section 8 home if you are using medical marijuana prescribed by a doctor?
Yes, and many people do this for valid reasons. They may find it difficult to port their original voucher to the new jurisdiction, so it is not uncommon for voucher holders to have their names on the waiting list in other jurisdictions where they can jump to that jurisdiction and use its voucher as opposed to porting their original voucher. You might want to check with that Housing Authority to see if you can use…
Surprisingly, yes you can! You can be on as many waiting lists you want to be for a Housing Choice Voucher, formerly known as the section 8 voucher. You can wait for in one state while you are holding a voucher in another. This is generally a strategic move because although you have the ability to port a voucher to another state, the Housing Authority that issued your voucher can claim it cannot afford to…
Section 8 housing is administered many different ways. There are thousands of Section 8 providers in the country including states, local governments, housing authorities, privately owned companies, and non-profit corporations. It is probably better for you to decide where you want to live and then look up the Section 8 provider in that community then contact them to find out if they are accepting applications and how long the waiting list is.

I just wrote to email@example.com (idk what state you're in, but im in snohomish county, WA state).. and asked a couple questions regarding section 8, and they replied AND sent me the application, even though i didnt ask...

I'm not sure i understand why you'd need a cell phone in the 1st place.... am I missing something? ~Wendy

Florida, like every other state in the United States, has a multitude of Housing Authorities distributed throughout, and the section 8 program is administered by those Housing Authorities. Each Housing Authority has its own rules by which people apply for this program. Most likely there will be a waiting list fact, if open, will take about five years or more, for your name to come up on it before they will process your application further…
