Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8)
Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) is a rent subsidy program that assists eligible low-income person and their families in obtaining affordable, decent and safe housing in the private market. A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the Chandler Housing Authority on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.
