  • Section 8 is also called HUD assisted. You might be able to find HUD approved apts in a regular complex. Sometimes the government will give a regular complex help if they will offer a few of their units as HUD.

    Also, you can look for small homes that are HUD. My sister and her husband built a home totally to be rented as HUD. The renter pays a part of the rent and the government pays the other half. For some landlords, its a more reliable way to rent their property out.

  • low income housing is your willingness to live a low standard of living. try section 8 instead...they are vouchers given to low income people and you choose where you live.
    I have lived in several low income complexes and they all have the same bs
    even in the smaller towns.
    Look in the goverment section of the white pages and there should be a housing number...call it and ask about section 8

  • expect to wait a year or longer. Especially since you are not an emergency case, you are in a safe situation where your at to them. Section 8 housing is usually done through the same place as public housing and takes about the same amount of time.
