Your voucher has been set for the number of bedrooms you qualify for, nothing more. They set this according to the size of your household. Boys and girls may have separate bedrooms if they are over 10 years of age, otherwise they sleep in the same bedroom. Every year you are evaluated for family size and other criteria. If any of this criteria changes your voucher will be adjusted accordingly.

Your family household can change because of a birth, a death, a marriage, or a court order giving custody of a child. Under strict guidelines a disabled person who needs home health care around-the-clock can have an extra bedroom for that person.

The purpose of the Housing Authority setting the bedroom size is to prevent the fraudulent practice of a family allowing an extra person to live with it.

Can you get a 3 bedroom with a 2 bedroom sec 8 voucher?

Generally, your voucher is for the dwelling of the number of bedrooms specified on it. So the payment standard set by the Housing Authority is going to be based on the number of bedrooms you are qualified to get under the voucher. If you want a dwelling with an extra bedroom the dwelling rent must be equal to or lower than the rent of the dwelling of the bedroom number specified. Additionally, the Housing Authority will determine your affordability of that dwelling based on utility allowance.
