If a participant of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program gets a notice that their benefits have changed or been terminated, they can request an Informal Hearing to argue against the action taken. The Public Housing Agency administering the program must allow the completion of an Informal Hearing upon request.
There is an involved process for an Informal Hearing, and if the participant does not abide by the rules of the process, the Informal Hearing may not be granted. This guide helps explain what a PHA Informal Hearing is, and the regulations of the Informal Hearing process.
