Through Section 8, buying a home requires obtaining a voucher. To apply for the Section 8 Homeownership program, you must contact your local PHA. Some agencies allow applicants to complete the application online, by phone or in person.

While some steps may vary, applicants generally must provide proof of identity and income. It is important to note that there are no fees to submit a Section 8 application.


Beware of fraudulent services that claim to facilitate the application process for a fee or provide application assistance only if you pay them money.

Once the agency processes your Section 8 application and accepts you into the program, it will place you on a waiting list among other eligible applicants.

The next step in the process is the Section 8 interview where agents speak with the family to collect all necessary documentation and assess eligibility. Applicants may need to provide documents such as their Social Security cards, birth certificates, medical assistance cards and photo identification.
