How can I find Section 8 or low income housing in Detroit, Michigan?
The Housing Authority, otherwise known as a PHA, is route one must take if they want to apply for Section 8 housing. HA’s are also known as PHA’s, or Public Housing Agencies. HUD gives funding to PHA’s to administer rental assistance programs locally. Applications for any government funded housing program are always free.
Can I get evicted if I’m on Section 8?
Section 8 voucher holders do not have any additional protections against evictions, and receive the same eviction notices and go through the same eviction process as any tenant in Detroit, Michigan. It is essential that voucher tenants remain in good communication with the PHA that administers their voucher throughout the eviction process. Inform your PHA immediately if you are unable to pay your rent. Send copies of any correspondence between you and your landlord to the PHA so that they are made aware of any problems that arise between you and your landlord. PHA’s have the right to terminate your voucher if you are evicted from your residence, and most often they will assert that right without question. You can request a grievance hearing if your voucher is being terminated because of an eviction, unless you are being evicted for certain criminal offenses. If you believe you are being evicted illegally, you can raise any defenses against the voucher termination in the grievance hearing. You can bring in legal counsel to a grievance hearing as well. For a detailed discussion on grievance hearings, see Section 8 Vouchers: Termination of Benefits. Your Section 8 voucher will likely be in jeopardy if you are evicted from your unit. Speak to an attorney for assistance if you are a Section 8 voucher holder facing eviction.
In some situations, if your landlord fails to bring your unit up to housing quality standards the PHA may reduce their portion of rent that they pay to the landlord in an “abatement” process. As long as you are current for the potion of rent you are responsible for the landlord may not evict you for non-payment of rent.
HUD funds the Section 8 housing program. When someone says, a HUD application, they are actually referring to a Section 8 application.
Under a project-based voucher, a tenant gets assistance so long as they remain in the unit that the voucher was issued for. The voucher lasts for a specified unit and time. If the family chooses to leave the unit, the assistance does not carry over to the next unit. A family may still, however, be eligible for a tenant-based voucher.

The Department of Housing and Urban Development, HUD, offers two types of subsidized housing to eligible low-income residents, the elderly and the disabled. The Housing Choice Vouchers program, HCV, also known as Section 8, provides renters with a subsidy they can use to secure housing in the private rental market. Public housing comprises government-funded-and-constructed units ranging from single-family homes to multi-unit dwellings. In both cases, you must meet similar eligibility requirements to qualify and complete a
HUD application online (Section 8 application).
Prepare to verify your income. In both programs, eligibility is based primarily on how much money you make in relation to your area’s median income. If you live in an affluent city, such as San Francisco, the income limits are higher than they are in places with lower median incomes. Generally, to qualify for the HCV program you cannot make more than 50 percent of your area’s median. For public housing, your income cannot surpass 80 percent of the median. In both cases, preference is given to the homeless, persons living in substandard housing and households that spend more than half of their income on rent. A HUD application can be the first step in finding subsidized housing in your area when applications are being accepted.
