How do I qualify and apply for Section 8?
Typically, a Section 8 application must be completed and signed by a responsible adult member of the family (preferably the head of household). The Section 8 application contains the information necessary for the Housing Authority to determine the person’s or family’s eligibility and documentation verifying income (earned and unearned) necessary to determine total and net family income. All verification essential to determine their total and net income and all other documentation relating to eligibility is made a part of the applicants record. The following information is usually needed:
A copy of Social Security Card for each family household member
A picture I.D. for all family members age 18 and older
Proof of all current income information for each household member
A copy of Birth Certificates for all members of the family
Proof of child custody may be required in some circumstances
Current Mailing Address
Daytime telephone number or emergency contact number
Who will notify me after I apply for Section 8 online?
Upon receipt of the family’s application after they apply for Section 8, the Housing Authority will make a determination of eligibility. The family will be notified of the approximate wait before housing may be offered. If the PHA determines the family is ineligible, the notice will state the reasons and will offer the family the opportunity for an Informal Review of the determination.
Housing choice vouchers are administered locally by public housing agencies (PHAs). The PHAs receive federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer the voucher program.
A family that is issued a housing voucher is responsible for finding a suitable housing unit of the family’s choice where the owner agrees to rent under the program. This unit may include the family’s present residence. Rental units must meet minimum standards of health and safety, as determined by the PHA.
A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the PHA on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program. Under certain circumstances, if authorized by the PHA, a family may use its voucher to purchase a modest home.
There are five eligibility requirements for admission to Section 8 or public housing: have an annual income at or below the income limits; meet one of PHA’s definitions of family; have at least one family member who is either a U.S. citizen or an eligible immigrant; provide Social Security numbers for every family member age 6 or older or certify that they do not have Social Security number; and sign consent authorization documents. In addition to the eligibility criteria, families must also meet KCDC screening criteria in order to be admitted and allowed to complete a Section 8 housing application.
How can I apply for Food Stamps
The Food Stamp program is now called SNAP and is run by the USDA which is a government entity entirely different from HUD. In order to become eligible to apply for Food Stamps in Boise Idaho or anywhere in the United States, you will need to fill out a Food Stamp (SNAP) application for the Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program, or SNAPS application. You can obtain a copy of the food stamps application from any Social Security office, or you can search for an online application on your state of local government website. Some states allow you to apply for food stamps online, or you can print out the application and turn in the completed form to your Social Security office.
