Three Things You Should Do To Apply For Low Income Housing or Other Section 8 Properties
My family and I went through this a few years back. We applied for low-income housing. The benefit for us is that my sister-in-law is a vet. Her status as a former marine helped us to get into HUD.
Now you might want to do the same. There are a few things you can do to get the application process going.
The first thing you need to do is learn about the programs they offer. We got into HUD. You might not have the same luck. However, there are other programs for low-income housing you might qualify for.
You can contact HUD personally. They might not be able to get you into the program, but they can help you in other ways. They can offer you other options with which to apply. Talk to one of their counselors. Tell them your story. See what happens.
You can look at the following three options. You never know what doors open up for you.
You can look into a privately-owned property. There are a lot of landlords that work with the government to help people find a home. The reduce the rent in order to make it more affordable. The housing might not be your dream home, but it will be a roof over your head. Do a Google search online. Click the "income restricted tab.
There is the public housing option. That is state-owned. The rent is set by the government or the state. You need to contact the public housing agency in your state for more information.
There is the Housing Choice Voucher Program. This option is limited, but it will give you a place to go. Click on section 8 housing for more details.
