Rensselaer is founded on the spirit of togetherness and with a county slogan of Life Looks Good From here, the House Choice Voucher Program aims to keep the life that way for the residents of the county.

Instituted to service low-income families with rental payment assistance through the Section 8 Program, Section 8 Housing Rensselaer County Ny provides housing and initiatives for those in need. With the aim in mind to provide clean, safe, and suitable housing for those who are eligible, the voucher program does not limit you to what type of accommodation is available. Unlike subsidized housing projects, the voucher program puts housing choices back in your hands. All housing is strictly vetted to fit within the minimum health and safety regulations set out by the PHA. This means you are free to choose whatever housing fits your unique requirements.

Your Housing Choice Voucher Program is moveable within Rensselaer County so you do not have to worry about finding employment close to home. Assistance is provided to you on your behalf which means you have the choice between single-family homes, townhouses, and apartments. Besides housing, the Section 8 Housing Rensselaer County Ny offers community outreach, job readiness, and upskilling programs to help you feel like a part of the togetherness of the county.

The Housing Choice Voucher Program is the largest and single most effective way to combat housing issues within the U.S. When you use your Section 8 voucher, you are able to rent the home you need without the additional financial stress. Rental is calculated on a percentage of your income, allowing you to budget accurately every single month. The remainder of your rent and utilities is paid directly to your landlord through your voucher.

To find out if you are eligible for the Housing Choice Voucher program, contact your local Rensselaer Housing Authority. Take back your power, and live a good life again with Section 8 housing.
