Can you have a criminal conviction and qualify for section 8 housing?

A criminal conviction does not necessarily disqualify you from a voucher, except two types for federal regulations: any violent or drug offenses within the past five years; any offense for which one must register as a sex offender in his state; and the manufacturing of methamphetamine in a public housing unit or assisted under the program. However, every Housing Authority has its own rules on what criminal convictions can disqualify you from the program, including the types of offenses and the age of the conviction.

Will a Felon get section 8 housing in KY?

It all depends on what type of felony that person is convicted of. If the person must register in his state as a sex offender, the felony is of violent or drug nature, or the felony involves public assistance fraud, then by federal regulations the Housing Authority cannot accept this person into the voucher program. And the Housing Authority may have its own rules of whom they may exclude as convicted felons from their programs. Most often than not they include felonies of any kind of less than 5-7 years from the date of release from incarceration or supervision, whichever later occurred.

What is section 8 housing?

Section 8 housing is government subsidized housing for low-income persons.

Section 8 Housing is one of two programs: the Voucher program (known as the Housing Choice Voucher Program), and the Public Housing program, which, instead of a voucher, provides a home from a property owned by a Government agency (typically a Housing Authority). In both cases the rent paid by the Tenant is adjusted according to the number of members and income of the family.

On the Voucher Program, the more popular type, a voucher is issued by a Housing Authority, which guarantees that the federal Government, HUD, will pay its portion of the tenant's rent (the tenant pays the rest, which is not more than 30 percent of his income).

Some rural apartment complexes are financed with Government-guaranteed, low-interest loans and tax incentives to house low-income renters. These complexes, known as Low-Income Housing Tax Credit (LIHTC) properties, have their own programs which allows low-income families to rent their units at a rent commensurate with their income. These are not Section 8 programs but are administered by HUD and USDA, Rural Development. Some urban complexes may have similar programs.

Additionally, some states and localities may have their own programs which supplement these federal programs.

Can you rent a room on section 8?

You can rent a room on different sections as long as it is still available. DISREGARD ABOVE Under the section 8 voucher program, you're not allowed to rent part of a home. The voucher is meant for someone to move into a safe, decent, sanitary home. You would not make sense to simply rent a room, when you can rent a whole apartment, or even a house.

Can felons apply for section 8 housing?

Theoretically anyone can apply. But certain types of felonies may not allow those convicted of such to be approved for a voucher per federal regulations or the policy of the local Housing Authority (policies that are approved by HUD). Examples include, but do not limit to: felonies committed less than five years from the last date of incarceration or supervision, whichever occurs later; sex offenders who are required to register in their state; drug traffickers, violent offenders (robbery, agg. assault, etc.); crimes, whether felony or less severe, involving fraud against or involving a Housing Authority or the use of one's voucher, and more.

i would like to know if me and my wife are qualified,our total income is 30,000 .We are both on social sercurity and are having a roughttime paying our medical and bills. Thank you

if both of you are on Social Security, this means that you are a disabled or elderly couple. Coupled with the low income of $30,000 per year, there is no question that you are qualified. But anyone on a low income can qualify for section 8 housing. However, elderly and disabled people often get preference over traditional families.
