How to find Section 8 property

To buy a property that is eligible for the Section 8 program, you can follow these steps:

  1. Determine if you are eligible to participate in the Section 8 program. In order to be eligible to receive Section 8 assistance, you must meet certain income and family size requirements. You can find out more about these requirements on the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) website.
  2. Find a property that is eligible for the Section 8 program. In order to be eligible for the Section 8 program, a property must meet certain standards for safety, habitability, and affordability. You can search for properties that are already participating in the Section 8 program on the HUD website or by contacting your local public housing agency.
  3. Contact the owner or manager of the property to express your interest in renting the unit. If the owner or manager is willing to rent the unit to you, they will need to complete a Request for Tenancy Approval (RTA) form and submit it to your local public housing agency.
  4. Work with your local public housing agency to complete the necessary paperwork and have your eligibility for the Section 8 program verified. This may include completing an application, providing documentation of your income and family size, and undergoing a background check.
  5. If your application is approved, you will be issued a voucher that you can use to rent the property. You will be responsible for paying a portion of the rent, and the Section 8 program will pay the remainder directly to the landlord.

It’s important to note that the availability of Section 8 properties may vary depending on your location and the demand for affordable housing in your area. You may need to be patient and persistent in your search for a Section 8 property.
