This is the Housing Choice Voucher Program Department page. Formerly called Section 8, this program allows low-income families to choose and lease safe, decent and affordable privately-owned rental housing. Tenants can utilize rental vouchers to find their own units and live in whichever neighborhood they wish. Many take advantage of portability features of the program to transfer to other parts of the country. The term "Section 8" is used to describe the various Housing Choice Voucher Programs because the federal law which created them was Section 8 of the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974. The SNRHA currently administers the following Section 8 programs: The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program, Section 8 Project Based, and various different Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Special Programs such as the Family Unification Program (FUP) and Non-Elderly Disabled Vouchers (NED).
