How Housing Choice Vouchers Help Tenants Find Accessible Rentals

The US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) provides federal funding to local public housing agencies (PHAs) which administer its housing voucher program, sometimes referred to as a Section 8 benefit. These allowances financially supplement qualified families and individuals to obtain PHA-approved rentals in their area. The vouchers allow recipients greater choice in where they live and the variety of accommodations they can rent.
