Section 8/Housing Choice Voucher

Some Housing Link participants have access to a Housing Choice Voucher (commonly known as a Section 8 voucher). Section 8 is a program that provides steady payment assistance for individuals and families in the private rental market. Program participants pay a monthly adjusted amount for rent and the balance is subsidized to the landlord by the Bucks County Housing Authority. As a landlord, there are significant benefits to participating in the Section 8 program. Learn more about the process of becoming a Section 8 landlord here.
