Prefer to Buy? Section 8 Can Help You PURCHASE a Home!

If you dream of owning a home, you can make your dream a reality with Section 8’s Homeownership Program!

The Housing Choice Voucher Homeownership Program lets you put your monthly Section 8 benefits toward homeowner expenses, including mortgage payments.

Specific requirements may depend on where you live. However, most PHAs simply require that you are:

  • A first-time homeowner.
  • Qualified for the Section 8 program based on income.
  • Employed full-time (unless you are disabled or elderly).
  • Educated on homeownership counseling through an education program.

To enroll in the Section 8 homeownership program, contact your local Public Housing Authority (PHA). The PHA can let you know if it offers the program in your area and provide any details about local requirements.
