The Housing Authority administers the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program for the Jefferson City and Cole County 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. To apply for a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher, print the Housing Application.
The Housing Authority inspects each Section 8 assisted unit before move-in and at least once every 24 months to make sure the apartment complies with Federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) standards and guidelines.
For more information about Section 8, email Rhonda or call the Housing Authority office at 573-635-6163 between 8:00 and 4:30.
