Parma Public Housing Agency Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8)

The Section 8 (Housing Choice Voucher) rental assistance program is one of the federal government’s major programs for helping low income families obtain decent, safe, and sanitary housing. In the Section 8 program, PPHA provides families with financial assistance so that the family can afford to rent a unit owned by a private landlord.

PPHA Housing Choice Voucher Program currently funds 742 families.

Our goal is to expand housing opportunities for Section 8 families in then areas that have not traditionally participated in the Housing Choice Voucher program. This goal includes improving rental assistance in other quality, well-maintained residential and multi-unit neighborhoods.
