Housing Choice Voucher programs offer low-income individuals and families the opportunity to search for both a housing type and neighborhood of their choice. Section 8 Vouchers can be used at any qualifying privately owned property, including single-family homes, townhomes and apartments.

The Housing Choice Voucher programs allow a greater level of mobility. The vouchers are attached to the individual, instead of being linked to the property. Therefore, a Section 8 voucher holder can move to a different unit in town or even to a different area, as long as there is a comparable Housing Choice Voucher program.

All Section 8 properties are regularly inspected for compliance with program standards.

Section 8 programs also offer the benefit of services that provide support in seeking additional employment and educational opportunities.

KCDC’s Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program will accept online applications the second Wednesday of every month beginning August 10, 2016 from 8 a.m. until 3p.m. Please apply online and applications will be processed by date and time received. For more information, click here.
