Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program

The Housing Authority also administers the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program for the Jefferson City area. A Section 8 Voucher helps eligible families pay the rent for apartments owned by private landlords. An individual with a voucher is responsible for finding an apartment and landlord that will accept the voucher. The tenant and landlord enter into a normal lease agreement with each party responsible for abiding by the terms of the contract. The tenant is also responsible for paying the damage deposit to the landlord.

The Housing Authority's Section 8 Waiting List is open, however the wait for a voucher is currently at least four years.  Applications are available at the Housing Authority Administrative office, the property management offices or may be printed from the website.

The Housing Authority will inspect Section 8 properties before move-in and on a yearly basis to make sure apartments comply with Federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) standards and guidelines.
