Section 8 Rental Assistance (Housing Choice Voucher)

Lincoln Housing Authority administers the federal Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program under a Moving to Work Agreement.  Eligible households receive a voucher which allows them to lease a home or apartment with rental assistance paid directly to the landlord. Tenants generally pay 27% of their adjusted household income toward rent and utilities. The Lincoln Housing Authority pays the difference between what the tenant can afford to pay and the rent the landlord charges.  Click here for additional information.
