HUD Section 8

Post by Beaglelover » Thu Nov 10, 2011 10:09 am

I called HUD of MI and have spoke with Dhs Mi. They haven't and are not doing section 8 in Mi and the waiting list is closed and I was told they haven't had it opened or gave out any help in 3yrs. I went on Mi.GOV but they still have it listed as there main resource for assisting in rent and vouchers but when I called was told no help will be offered that I'm on my own. What am I to do I just got divorced from a 9yr marriage where my Ex left us with nothing. Court has ordered me out of my house within 90 days of divorce...So im with a 9yr old and his dog told the help I can get. is only if im homeless for 30 days living on the street or in my car with my son in witch Child protection services would take from me if im living on the street or in my car. Thats what I was told by the state of Mi.

Did you speak to your attorney about that? The court can't put you into a position to be homeless. Even if significant other gets the home during divorce, then you should be "bought" out of your half of home ownership. So you should get cash from it, which can be used to pay rent. Something sounds very wrong here. Maybe you need to look into the Free Michigan legal aid programs and advice.

We are not sure if section 8 pays for electric deposits in Georgia. But you can call around. Read about and get details on Georgia section 8 housing vouchers. Find phone numbers for agencies like Atlanta housing authority, dial (404) 892-4700.

Well there are a number of section 8 HUD agencies in California. So if you had a bad experience with one manager from one company, just call another and apply. $695 is expensive, but rent in California is not cheap, especially Modesto and Los Angeles. So try this for other California section 8 housing programs, and call a different PHA that administer the service.

I need a 2nd chance. I really made the mistake of letting the father of my 2 youngest children move in while I was on housing. I currently get section 8 vouchers here in Bakersfield CA. I tried adding him on the lease, he was denied cause of his background. He committed a crime that was over 10 years ago. We been separated for almost a year, he now lives with another young girl & i am struggling a little bit & am begging for a second chance please I really hope to hear from someone asap. God bless.

I am a single mom of two. I aim without transportation and my health is poor and i have been unable to work. i do receive hud rental assistance which has always covered my entire rent of 550.00. Recently our local HUD office in Cincinnati changed its entire staff,changing and even creating new policies all together in the program. Thus being said i am now responsible for 228 of the total 550 monthly rent.. I have not been able to make the payments as recently expected, falling now 3 and approaching 4 months delinquent. As of now i am behind 684.00 and soon to be another 228.00 added to that is their any help that i might qualify for?

Right now I have a house through section 8. This year my rent went up way too much. I have a 7 year old son, I'm on disability and trying to go to school. I can't make it on my own anymore. I feel like a complete failure and don't ask for help much. But I've now reached my breaking point and I'm losing everything. Please help.

Section 8 housing choice voucher. I’m in HUD subsidized housing now. I need my caregiver to now live with me. Due to health they've denied her application... So I have to move to have the care... Which I can't afford... But I have no choice... Because of their rule. Which is not Federal guidelines rules... I'm asking for HUD voucher like is here with building to take with me. So I can afford to live and have my live in: home-care... I don't understand the problem... people do it all the time. I did home-care before my job before I became disabled... They're choosing their own rules here... thank you for listening. Hopefully you'll look into section 8 HUD voucher and I qualify for a voucher.
