Step 1
     Before beginning the application process, make sure you qualify for Section 8/public housing in your area. To qualify, your income must be below 50 percent of your areaís median income (Click HERE for SC's standards). Elderly and disabled individuals are also eligible. You must also be a U.S. citizen or have an eligible immigrant status. Finally, your previous rental history must be without flaws in order to receive a voucher for Section 8 housing.

Step 2
     Make sure you have the documentation you will need to complete your application for Section 9 housing; this includes birth certificates, pay stubs, tax records, etc.

Step 3
     Obtain an application from the public housing authority (PHA) that administers Section 8 housing in your area. Be advised that most areas have waiting lists over one year long, so it is a good idea to apply early.

Step 4
     Once you receive the application, fill it out in writing. Please note that typed applications are not accepted. In order for your application to be considered complete, you will need to document the names of everyone who will be living in the house; your current address and phone number; your specific circumstances (i.e., why you are applying for Section 8 housing); previous rental history with names of landlords and their addresses; your householdís estimated yearly income; name and address of your banking institution; and, finally, verification from your employer. An interview may also be required in order to receive a voucher for Section 8 housing.

Step 5
     Once you move to the top of the waiting list, you will receive a voucher that can be used to obtain Section 8 housing. You will have 60 days to find housing that meets the HUDís Housing Quality Standards, has rent comparable to similar other housing units and whose owner is willing to participate in the Section 8 housing program.

Step 6
     Once you have received a voucher, contact us to find a home that will meet your needs.
