  • I am on disability and I have a section 8 voucher...but I live in NY state. You'll be put on the waiting list, so it's unlikely that you'll be issued a voucher immediately.

  • Im in SC and did you realize that THIS state is #2 in unemployment before you moved here? You can get section 8 here but you have to have lived here for a certain amount of time and you need to get on the list which is miles and miles long, sorry dear.
