Providence Section 8 Housing
The Leased Housing Department, more commonly referred to as Section 8, offers rental assistance to over 2,600 participants.
Rental assistance programs under this umbrella include, but aren’t limited to, the following:
- Housing Choice Voucher (HCV)
- Veterans Affairs Supportive Housing (VASH)
- Project Based Vouchers (PBV)
- Mainstream Vouchers (MSV)
- Moderate Rehabilitation Program (Mod-Rehab)
Our Leased Housing staff is experienced and knowledgeable with an average of 19.5 years employed at the PHA and an average of 15 years within the department. They provide services to over 2,600 participants in our rental assistance programs. They also manage the PHA wait list, last opened in 2016, which has over 1,500 names on it. Our Leased Housing team earned the Department of Housing and Urban Development’s (HUD) designation of High Performers for its management of the Section 8 Programs in 2002 and maintains that status.
While the need for rental assistance is great, our actual program size fluctuates depending on HUD’s funding budget. The PHA takes advantage of as many opportunities as possible to serve those in the program and those waiting for rental assistance while providing the highest levels of customer service possible.
