  • I've never applied for section 8 but I would imagine so if you guys live together, besides, these days it's probably more common to not be married.... :o(

  • i am pretty sure that its based off of household - so as long as you live together you should be fine. i would just call to double check though. I know here they aren't accepting new applicants for section 8 though

  • Yeah. It will be the both of your incomes combined

  • YES!! legally you can .. you have to account all income in the house!! NO MATTER WHAT!!.. but there are always those out there who lie, (yes some may be reading this) and get away with it, which is not fair to our tax dollars seeing the states pays for it. So please if you most us it,be honest. Hey I was there once too but I decided to move when they changed my rent to $800 !! for the both of us (he moved in with me). Good Luck Hun.. and remember just be honest about it.
