General Information:
Apply for Housing Charleston-Kanawha Housing offers two types of housing programs, Section 8 Rental Assistance and Public Housing. Section 8 rental assistance programs are federal programs funded through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and administered by Charleston-Kanawha Housing. These include the Housing Choice Voucher program, which is tenant-based assistance (assistance travels with a family), and the Moderate Rehabilitation Program, which is unit-based assistance (a family has assistance as long as they reside in a unit). Families cannot use a voucher in a Mod Rehab unit. Families are responsible for finding their own housing and paying a portion (30%) of their monthly income toward rent and utilities. Charleston-Kanawha Housing makes up the difference between the cost and the families contribution. The public housing program offers tenants a home in communities managed by Charleston-Kanawha Housing. The rent they pay is based on 30% of their monthly-adjusted income and all basic utilities are paid. Charleston-Kanawha Housing manages six family communities and four high-rise communities as well as scattered sites throughout the city of Charleston. These communities provide homes for more than 2000 residents.
