Rental Assistance Programs
There are several different rental assistance programs available through Kentucky Housing Corporation. These programs offer very low-income residents an opportunity to find housing at an affordable price. Kentucky Housing administers many federal rental assistance programs throughout the state. The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) pays a portion of the resident's rent (subsidy) and the resident pays the rest (usually 30 to 40 percent of their income). The most widely used programs are the Project-Based Rental Administration and the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8).
KHC offers an Assisted Rental Housing in Kentucky directory which lists available rental housing in counties throughout the state. Also, be sure to review our Fair Housing page to learn your rights.
Do you have rental properties in any of the counties administered by Kentucky Housing Corporation? If you do, please consider renting to a Section 8 certificate or voucher participant. KHC will be happy to list your vacant unit for all participating families looking for rental housing. It is voluntary to participate, and you should screen potential tenants.
