section 8 housing
It depends on why you lost your voucher, and, like the voucher program, there is a waiting list for public housing.
Formerly known as Section 8, a Housing Choice Voucher is a voucher issued by the local public housing authority to a landlord which participates in the Program, which guarantees that the specified amount of housing assistance payments on the voucher will be paid by the federal Government on behalf of the tenant.
The purpose of the Section 8 Voucher Program, now known as the Housing Choice Voucher Program, is to be able to rent a home from a provate source.
This is a question to ask the Housing Authority that is administering the Section 8 Program.
All states of the United States accept section 8 vouchers. The section 8 program is a federal program that is handled by the local housing authorities. But the voucher is only good at the jurisdiction that issued the voucher or where the voucher was ported to. To use your voucher at another jurisdiction you must arrange with the issuing housing authority to port over to the receiving housing authority.
Each Housing Authority has its own rules by which someone applies for a section 8 voucher, now known as a housing choice voucher, or public housing. Most qualifications are the same for every jurisdiction, since the section 8 housing program is a federal program.
This is called porting your voucher. You need to contact the housing authority of the area you like to move to. This will be known as your receiving housing authority. Then contact your initial housing authority, the one who is giving your assistance now. Arranged between the two for you to import your voucher. Meanwhile look for your new apartment/home.
An enhanced voucher would mean one that was given for a special reason or purpose. They're the same as Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8)
