Why Participate In The Section 8 Program?

The program offers benefits to an owner in several areas:
  • The rent loss caused due to the owner associated with unit turnover is reduced because demand for Section 8 assistance is high;
  • The owner is assured of rent collection since, in many cases, the PPHA is responsible for paying a substantial portion of the rent;
  • Rent whether resident has income or not. Normally the HA will increase its portion of the contract rent if the family experiences a loss of income;

Landlord/Owner Participation in the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program can be revoked if:

  • The owner has been disbarred, suspended or subject to a limited denial of participation;
  • The federal government has instituted an administrative or judicial action against the owner for violation of the Fair Housing Act or other federal equal opportunity requirements;
  • A court or administrative agency has determined that the owner violated the conditions listed above;
  • The owner has committed fraud, bribery or any other corrupt or criminal act;
  • The owner has engaged in drug related or violent criminal behavior;
  • The owner has a history of HQS (inspection) non-compliance;
  • In addition, PPHA will not approve a unit if the owner is the parent, child, grandparent, grandchild, sister or brother of any member of the family.
