What is the Section 8 Home Ownership Program?
On September 12, 2000, HUD published the final rule for the Homeownership Voucher Program. Since then, there have been widespread expressions of interest in the program from would-be participants and Public Housing Agencies (PHAs).
Prospective participants are eager to use voucher assistance to purchase a home of their own. PHAs are enthusiastic about the possibility of assisting families in purchasing homes, but need guidance on designing
programs that allow participating families to have the greatest chance for success.
This guidebook is intended as a first step in meeting that need.
