Equal Housing Opportunity

 It is your responsibility to find a place you want to live and a landlord willing to participate in the Section 8 program. To make this process easier, the Housing Agency office provides listings of landlords or property managers interested in participating in the program.  Please note that there is no guarantee that these units are suitable for your household.

We recommend that you use all available avenues for locating units, including classified ads and print and online housing search sites.
