Can I use a Section 8 voucher to pay my mortgage?

If the housing authority that administers your Section 8 voucher program participates in HUD's Homeownership Voucher program, you can use a Section 8 voucher to assist with your mortgage payment. Of the more than 2.300 housing authorities across the country, HUD reports that about 960 of these reported at least one Homeownership voucher.

If you don't currently have a Section 8 Voucher, you would first need to obtain one by applying through a housing authority.
