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.

Check with your local HUD office for a list of programs and who to contact to get on the different waiting lists.
