The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program has been formed as a major collaboration between the public and private sectors to assist lower-income families, veterans, the disabled, and the elderly to once again afford safe housing. Section 8 Housing Washington County provides decent, safe, sanitary housing within the private market. Our priority and commitment to the community of Washington County NY are to provide housing that you can choose from to suit your needs and requirements. This means that participants within this program are free to choose their own housing and because we understand that housing requirements change over time, other assistance is afforded to those who qualify.
Housing voucher programs allow for mobility in the case of employment within Washington County and takes into account your needs as you begin your journey to employment and financial freedom. Eligibility for the Section 8 Housing Washington County is decided by the PHA, but the housing choice voucher places the choice of housing firmly in your hands. This is because our organization is based on the belief that you deserve mutual respect and integrity above everything else.
Accommodations are strictly monitored and must meet the stringent health and safety standards set out by the PHA and does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, sex, color, familial status. Reasonable accommodation compensation is the cornerstone of our program and you are at the heart. Because the threat of housing costs can create unnecessary stress, the Housing Choice Voucher Program enables participants to structure their rental and utility costs based on a percentage of your monthly income. The remainder of your utilities and rental costs are covered by your voucher, alleviating your financial stress.
