Generally the housing authority in your area that provides housing for low income will have you sign up for Section 8, IF that option is still open in your area..Where I lived until last month (Colorado) They were no longer taken applications for section 8 OR for family dwellings on low income because of the great demand..UNLESS you are disabled (any age) or a senior age 55 (usually) and over considered a senior. Ask around especially the senior center even if you are not a senior. I will tell you that I was on the section 8 wait list for 3 years and never got on..But I was single..perhaps having a family or being a senior would help.But ask for information at your social security office or veterans affairs..SOMEONE should know something. Good Luck.
