Thanks for your question. Typically, homeowners--unless they have experience with the local housing authority practices and rules--do not accept Section 8 housing vouchers. Although Section 8 Housing Vouchers are intended to help citizens find appropriate housing, many owners are unaware of how to use these vouchers, don't know the rules concerning section 8 rentals, and, most commonly, may have heard stories about damages caused by section 8 renters. As a result, the actions of an irresponsible few do make it difficult for those who are truly in need and will be good renters to find homes.
My suggestion is that you can always talk to landlords about accepting a renter who uses Section 8 assistance. You can also go back to the housing authority and ask them for a list of homes that do accept Section 8. The housing authority has a list of all those landlords who provide section 8 housing.
