  • Income: Section 8 Housing is a program designed to help lower-income individuals afford housing. Income limits will differ based on the number of people in the family.

    • Background: You may not qualify if you have been evicted from a property within the last three years for criminal activity as well as poor tenant history, misdemeanors or felonies for violence or illegal substances (marijuana is illegal in federal housing even in states where it is legalized), or have bad credit due to unpaid bills. Each application is reviewed individually by our community managers and compliance staff.
