Section 8 Program - Tenants


Across the United States, the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program helps low-income families afford decent housing in the private rental market.  The Housing Authority provides rental assistance to over 23,000 low-income families throughout Los Angeles County.  The program helps eligible families afford safe, decent, high-quality rental housing.  Participants rent housing from private landlords and pay a portion of their income towards rent.  The Housing Authority subsidizes the difference in monthly payments directly to the owner.  Owners, participants and the Housing Authority share in making this three-way-partnership a success.
