I believe the answer is yes. According to the tenant-based section 8 housing choice voucher, they are portable and/or transferable. “Meaning once a person is issued a voucher, he or she can potentially use that Voucher anywhere in the country.” For further information, check Midwest Regional Office: 77 W. Jackson Blvd., Chicago. (312) 353-6236.

Contact their local government and speak with some in their housing authority.
