The Housing Choice Voucher Program, commonly referred to as the “Section 8 Program” , enables low-income families in Winnebago County, WI to rent safe housing that is affordable in the private market through funds provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. By enrolling in the program you will receive a voucher that allows a portion of your rent to be paid directly to the property manager or property owner by the Housing Authority.
The Housing Authority accepts applications for the Housing Choice Voucher Program on an ongoing basis, with applicants selected in order of preference and date and time of application.
