Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8)
The Housing Choice Voucher Program helps to pay a subsidy amount towards the rent for low-income persons, so they can live in a house, condo, duplex, townhome, apartment, or mobile home of their choice.
To qualify for this program, rental units must meet the standards of health and safety, as determined by the Mid-Missouri Public Housing Agency (MMPHA).
How Does It Work?
The housing subsidy is paid directly to the landlord by MMPHA 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.
