HAP is opening a new waiting list application process for Section 8 vouchers on Nov. 1, 2006 and will close the process on Nov. 17. You must apply during this time to have a chance at getting Section 8 rent help. The Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8)is funded by US Dept of Hsg & Urban Dev. & allows low-income residents to find their own place and use the voucher to pay for all or part of the rent, depending on their income level. In Multnomah County, HAP administers the program and pays the subsidy to the landlord.
