Section 8 Vouchers, Apartments, and Waiting Lists in Wright County, Minnesota

Public Housing Agencies operate federally assisted affordable housing programs at local levels on behalf of HUD. Notably, housing agencies are responsible for managing Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher, Public Housing, and Project-Based Voucher waiting lists within their jurisdiction.

Eligibility for the project-based program is similar to the voucher programs, but waiting list and application policies will vary depending on the landlord.
