Section 8 Participants

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCVP) is a federally funded rental assistance program designed to help low income families, senior citizens, and people with disabilities afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing. The program provides subsidies to qualified households for use in private housing in the community of their choice. Under the Section 8 Program, households initially pay 30%-40% of their gross income towards the rent plus utilities and the Federal Government pays the difference between that amount and the approved contract rent amount.

Family Self-Sufficiency Program

The Family Self-Sufficiency (FSS) program enables families assisted through the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program and Public Housing (PH) residents, to increase their earned income and reduce their dependency on welfare assistance and rental subsidies. Under the FSS program, low-income families are provided opportunities for education, job training, counseling and other forms of social service assistance, while living in assisted housing, so they can obtain skills necessary to achieve self-sufficiency.

A reasonable accommodation request can only be denied if it causes an undue administrative and financial burden or changes the fundamental nature of MHA and its programs.
