Through the Housing Choice Voucher program (formerly Section 8), SHA provides rental assistance for people with low incomes to rent from landlords throughout the Seattle rental market. While SHA administers the voucher program and determines whether tenants are eligible to receive the subsidy, rentals continue to be managed and leased by the owners, who screen tenants for suitability.

Benefits of the program

Consistent rental payments, free inspections and helping others are a few of the benefits of participating in the Housing Choice Voucher program.
