The U.S. government provides housing assistance through Section 8, which helps low-income families find safe places to live at an affordable price. Qualified applicants will typically be placed on a waiting list with their local Public Housing Authority (PHA) due to a high demand for housing assistance through the program. When a Section 8 voucher becomes available, they will be notified. Learn more about the Section 8 program by downloading our free guide.
