Who takes Sec 8 housing around here?

Asked by Dina Hawley, 97267 Fri Jun 10, 2011

I need to find a house that excepts Sec 8 housing assistance. I have three kids and my allotment is around 1450 for a 4 bedroom house. The Utilities come off of that amount. Whats ever left is the rent amount they will cover.
Thank you

It depends upon they type of voucher, but either one you will have a lot of options. If you are enrolled in the Housing Choice Voucher program it allows you to seek a rental of your choice. In Oregon, Landlords are not required to accept Sect 8 but many do & you can always ask if they would be willing to. Get in touch with a property management company who specializes in your area, they can assist you in finding a property. You could also contact the area's PHA for rental listings, & lastly, here are a couple online sources:

Check http://www.housingconnections.org/Search.cfm. That is from the Housing Authority of Portland, and it lets you utilize a number of search criteria to find an available unit.

Using only 4-BR and "within 30 days" as search criteria I found seven 4-BR units available.

Consider asking your caseworker for a list of available rentals, check with local realty offices, check local print media for owner rentals, word of mouth, etc.
