The Section 8 Program is a federal rent subsidy which assists participants with monthly rental payments that helps lower-income, disabled and elderly residents get affordable housing in the state.

Please be aware that demand for Section 8 assistance in Florida is high. In most cities, there are wait lists to receive aid.

Section 8 eligibility is largely based on household income. Income limit is divided into three categories:

  1. Low Income (80% of median income)
  2. Very Low Income (50% of the median income)
  3. Extremely Low Income (60% of the very low income level/30% of the median income)
