  • If you are asking about living in a building which is income based, then I have lived in one of those before and they calculated my pay with the rent they charged and ended up paying my rent for me and giving me a small check of like $90 a month or so to help pay for utilities. I was a single mom at the time and working as hard as I could, but just couldn't cover everything.

  • Sec 8 is separate from cash benefits.

  • I'm sure how much is paid and what is covered would vary from state to state.
