Public Housing
Public housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities. Public housing comes in all sizes and types, from scattered single family houses to highrise apartments for elderly families. There are approximately 1.2 million households living in public housing units, managed by some 3,300 HAs. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers Federal aid to local housing agencies (HAs) that manage the housing for low-income residents at rents they can afford. HUD furnishes technical and professional assistance in planning, developing and managing these developments.
Section 8

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is a federally funded (HUD) program, and subsidizes the rent for eligible low income households in the private sector. Rents for the units must be reasonable and pass the Housing Quality Standards inspection. NCFRHA conducts the inspections and determines the reasonableness of the rent request. The participating family pays a percentage (generally 30% to 40%) of its monthly income for shelter plus utilities and the NCFRHA pays the difference directly to the owner of the unit. NCFRHA covers LEVY, GILCHRIST AND WAKULLA counties.
