Section 8
This program, referred to as HCV, is a rental assistance program designed to give low to moderate income families the opportunity to rent an apartment in the private market, while paying 30% of their income toward rent. As with all of our HUD funded programs, participants must qualify as income eligible, with the household income being no greater than 80% of Area Median Income. Participants are required to sign a one-year lease initially, after which the resident and landlord have the option of renewing each year on the anniversary date of move-in. The Housing Authority currently operates this program in Anderson and surrounding communities in Madison County. All rental units must be inspected by our inspector and pass Housing Quality Standards (HQS), as well as any local applicable codes.

This program does not provide emergency housing and you must apply to be placed on our waiting list when we are accepting applications. The Anderson Housing Authority's Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program Is NOT accepting pre-applications for placement on the Waiting List at this time.  

Section 8 Rental Units
Landlords participating in this program operate their Section 8 rental units just as they would any other rental unit. We encourage all landlords to check references prior to leasing any unit to a resident with a Voucher. Section 8 participants are expected to abide by all lease provisions set forth by the landlord. For more information about rental assistance, or if you are a property owner who is interested in participating as a landlord on the program you may Register with GoSection8 or Login to list your property , please contact our office between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. at (765) 641-2620.

Does My Income Qulify?
The AHA use income limits developed by HUD. HUD sets the income limits at 80% and very low income limits at 50% of the median income for the county or metropolitan area in which you choose to live. Income limits vary from area to area so you may be eligible at one HA but not at another. The Anderson Housing Authority can provide you with the income levels for your area and family size, or you can also find the income limits here on the internet.
