Seattle Housing Authority provides rent subsidy payments to owners and landlords of privately owned buildings through its Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8). The agency administers the voucher program and determines whether tenants are eligible. The buildings are managed and leased by their owners, who screen tenants for suitability.
