  • yes, you can get section 8 the issue is there is usually a waiting list - several years long!!! However, if you find where you can immediately get section 8 tell me cuz I'll move there LOL

    Your best bet is probably more a subsidized apartment complex that is based on your income. they seem to have faster turnover than an individual unit that takes section 8.
