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

We don't take Section 8 applications because our properties are not approved by the system. We spent more than a month going through the process a couple of years ago. After holding the application for a couple of months we were told that the agreed rent was "above market" and told to lower it if we wanted this Section 8 tenant. We promptly found a fine tenant at our original asking price. The process cost us two month's rent.
