The Deep East Texas Council of Governments serves as a funding agency for the Section 8 Housing Assistance Program, or its new term “Housing Choice Voucher Program". Funding is provided through the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.



What is Section 8?

The Section 8 program provides rental assistance to low-income families in the private rental market through the Housing Assistance Payments program or Housing Choice Voucher Program.

Rental voucher holders select a unit from the private rental market. Rental assistance makes market rate housing affordable. Program participants normally pay no more than 30% of monthly adjusted income towards rent and utilities. The Housing Assistance Payment subsidizes the balance of the rent to the property owners.
