HOUSING

What is Affordable Housing?

Housing should cost no more than 30% of annual household income, yet it often costs considerably more for low and median wage-earners. Affordable housing makes it possible for households that earn 60% or less of area median income (AMI) to pay for housing. Use the tools and program information below to help determine your eligibility and learn more about our programs.

Section 8 Housing

What is Section 8?Section 8 helps low and very low-income households. There are two types of Section 8 programs: Section 8 vouchers and project-based Section 8.

Project-based Section 8 is an affordable housing subsidy connected to the rental unit. The subsidy provides the difference between the market rate value of the home and 30% of the resident’s income. If the resident moves, the subsidy will go to the next qualified resident who moves into the Section 8 unit.

Section 8 Vouchers are given to individuals, not properties. CommonBond welcomes people with Section 8 vouchers. Once a person acquires a Section 8 Voucher from the government, their household can choose to live at many properties (market rate or affordable) and the government pays the difference between 30% of the renter’s income and the fair market rate of an apartment in that area.
