Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8 Rental Assistance)
Housing Choice Vouchers provide rental assistance and allow recipients to locate and rent a house, duplex, apartment or mobile home on their own, as long as the dwelling meets the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development's housing guidelines. Vouchers are available throughout Kentucky. Local housing authorities administer the Section 8 program in some areas and you must apply to them. For counties administered by Kentucky Housing Corporation, you can apply for assistance when the program accepts applications.
Due to overwhelming demand, the waiting list for Section 8 in the 87 counties in which KHC administers the program will not be accepting applications until Friday, July 25, 2014, through Thursday, July 31, 2014.
If you have already submitted a Section 8 application or are already on the waiting list, all changes to your application must be submitted in writing to Kentucky Housing Corporation, 1231 Louisville Road, Frankfort, Kentucky 40601 or e-mail Rquisenberry@kyhousing.org.
