How much rent will I have to pay if I have a Section 8 voucher?


  1. yes help me and grand kid find houseing
  2.   It really depends on many criteria.  For example, if you find a lower cost rental, and your income is very low, it's possible for section 8 to cover the whole thing.  At one point I had an apt for $850 and I not only had it all paid for but they gave me $67 a month to supplement my income.  It all depends on a lot of variables.

  3. How would I do that? Another question, When you move into section 8 housing, are they suppose to raise the rent shortly after your in there, (3monthe)?
  4. If your child is 15 years old and get a summer job. Does their money goes toward rent?

  5. This varies by the fair market rental value within your specific city. The voucher will be based on your monthly income and will pay anything above 30% of your adjusted monthly income up to a predetermined amount. For example, if your monthly income is $1,000 a month, and you want to rent a property for $500 a month, you would pay $300 a month in rent and the voucher would pay $200, as long as the (Fair Market Rent) was equal to or greater than $500.
