How Does Section 8 Work In Orlando?
The Section 8 program will help pay for housing, but only if it meets the program requirements. Essentially, a housing unit must be safe and sanitary to be eligible. Section 8 voucher recipients are also required to pay 30% of their adjusted income towards the rent.
The individual/household applies for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. The applicant is likely placed on a waiting list that may take more than 1-2 years. During this time, the applicant can also choose to accept project-based vouchers.
Section 8 Housing Voucher Program Eligibility
Who pays the rent? Under the Section 8 Program, the tenant pays a portion of the rent based on 30% of their income and JH pays the remaining portion of the rent directly to the owner. If the tenant has a rental payment, he/she must pay rent through the end of the lease, as long as they are still occupying the unit.
