Rental Assistance Programs

The Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) and the Tenant Based Rental Assistance (TBRA) are federally funded rental assistance programs administered by the Housing and Community Development Division. The programs provide very low income households with subsidized housing assistance. Persons who qualify for assistance are issued a housing voucher and authorized to find a housing unit that meets the needs of the family and requirements of the program.

Current Status

We are not accepting applications at this time.


Applicants must be legal citizens and meet the income eligibility criteria for very low income households.


Landlords have the responsibility to screen families to determine if they will be good renters. They must comply with fair housing laws, make repairs that are not tenant-caused in a timely manner, collect the tenant’s rent, enforce the lease and comply with the terms of the Housing Assistance Program (HAP) contract.
