General Information:
We recommend you call your local housing authority for low cost and affordable housing options along with finding area resources for affordable housing options and locations for area shelters in their area. Housing authorities provide decent and affordable housing in a safe and secure living environment for low and moderate income residents. Oftentimes they provide section 8 housing choice vouchers for those that qualify for low income housing. Most every housing authority that provides vouchers currently has multi year waiting lists. Housing authorities also provide low income public housing options that also often have multi year waiting lists. Housing authorities also provide low cost apartments for seniors, handicapped persons, single mothers with children, and homeless.   Public Housing Public Housing was established to provide decent and safe rental housing for low-income to moderate-income families, elderly persons and persons with disabilities. The U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) administers federal aid to local housing agencies to manage the housing for residents at affordable rents. How Do I Apply? Simply visit the Management office for the development (whose wait list is open) and request an application or visit the St. Louis Housing Authority (SLHA) and request an application for Public Housing.   ection 8 How do I know when the Section 8 Wait List is open?

What happens when my name comes to the top of the wait list? You will be sent an appointment letter by mail to attend an eligibility session. Your income will be calculated to ensure that you are eligible to receive assistance. When will I be issued the Voucher? It will take approximately 12-18 months from the time of application to be issued a voucher. How much time do I have to find a unit? Each client is given 60 days initially to locate housing. If your housing search is unsuccessful you will need to request a 30-day extension. How much of my rent will Section 8 pay? Eligible families pay up to 40% of their adjusted income toward their rent. Section 8 pays the remainder directly to the owner. The family is responsible for the security deposit. As an owner how can I participate in the Section 8 Program?
