Applicants Section 8 Participants Speciality Programs Landlords Community Resources About Us




Our agency assists about 190 households through the federal rental housing assistance (Housing Choice Voucher, also known as Section 8) program.  All of our program funding comes from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Our programs are targeted to assist low, very low, and extremely low-income households.  The vast majority-more than 80%-of our client households are extremely low-income families, seniors, veterans, persons with disabilities, and formally homeless.  Working together with landlords, we strive to provide housing and support services to as many eligible families as possible.

The Caribou Housing Authority processes several of new applications every year. There are more applicants than there are available housing units or vouchers– so the waiting lists can be very long. It is difficult to predict the time between applying and receiving a housing offer. The waiting period can depend on many things including current housing situation and preferences. Based on these considerations, some applicants may get a housing offer earlier than others.

Caribou Housing does not provide immediate housing nor does it provide short-term or shelter housing.
