Where can Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers be used?

According to HUD, Housing Choice Vouchers may be used in any non-subsidized rental home that meets an acceptable level of safety standards and rent reasonableness.

Once a voucher holder submits a request for approval, the Public Housing Agency will inspect the unit to ensure those standards are met.

In some jurisdictions, Housing Choice Vouchers are not a protected source of income meaning landlords can legally refuse to rent to an otherwise qualified voucher household.
