How can I get a Section 8 application and apply for Section 8 in Tucson, Arizona?

Finding a PHA that is currently accepting a Section 8 application or an application for Public Housing can be very difficult. Most housing authorities have to keep their Section 8 waiting list closed because of the huge demand for low income housing and rental assistance programs in general. The process to complete these applications are always free and can only be done via an official housing authority location or website.

What are Section 8 apartments?

A HUD application Section 8 housing application is what someone would have to complete in order to reside in a Section 8 apartment or house. This might also be referred to as a Section 8 apartment application, but the real title for this program is the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. HUD is the government agency that funds this program and allocates money to housing authorities that administer the program locally.

Any dwelling that is a residential property in the United States could potentially be rented to a Section 8 tenant. All anyone has to do to become a Section 8 landlord, is to own one of these properties and sign the Housing Assistance Payment Contract with their local housing authority. The property will have to be inspect first and approved for safety and decent housing. The tenant that has completed a Section 8 apartment application and actually has a voucher in hand, can now be considered for that particular housing opportunity. Being on a Section 8 waiting list however, can take years.
