Section 8 Homeownership

The Section 8 Homeownership Program allows first-time homeowners participating in the Housing Choice Voucher Program to use the monthly subsidy to meet their monthly homeownership expenses (i.e. mortgage payments, utilities, maintenance and upkeep of the property). Much like the Section 8 rental program, the family’s share of the mortgage is an affordable percentage of their income, generally between 30 and 40 percent of their monthly income.
