The Section 8 Housing Voucher Program assists in making safe and quality housing in the private rental market affordable to low, and very low-income households by reducing housing costs through direct rent subsidy payments to landlords. The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Section 8 HCV program is based on the premise that housing costs (rent and utilities) should not exceed 30 percent of a household's income.

Assistance is provided to low, and very low-income households and individuals.

The statewide program is available to residents of all New Jersey counties.  Section 8 Existing Housing programs are administered throughout the State by a number of municipal and county authorities. Click the link below to see the list of county authorities directory.
