Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8)

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program provides affordable housing options to low-income individuals and families, and is administered through the St. Louis Park Housing Authority. Currently, the housing authority provides approximately 300 Section 8 housing vouchers to individuals and families in St. Louis Park.

A family that receives a housing voucher can choose a housing unit where the owner agrees to rent under the program. The housing authority will pay the rent subsidy to the owner of the rental property with funds provided by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The family will then pay the difference between the actual rent charged and the subsidy on rent and utilities, which it typically between 30 and 40 percent of their annual income.
