Need Assistance Paying your Rent?

The Housing Authority is here to help!

Rent Assistance FAQ ButtonIf you are looking to choose your own housing or get assistance in your current residence, you might be interested in a voucher.  The first thing that must be done is to complete and return an application to our office.  This application would be placed on our waiting list.  Once the application comes to the top of the waiting list, paperwork would be done to ensure the applicant qualifies for the program.  The prospective unit the applicant would like to live in would need to be inspected by the Housing Authority and must meet our standards.  Tenants on the Section 8 program pay 30-40% of their adjusted monthly income towards rent and utilities and the HRA pays the balance.
