New Hampshire Section 8 Housing.

The Section 8 Housing program in New Hampshire is for low income families, the working poor, seniors, and families living in poverty. Tenants can use the voucher to help them pay for section 8 approved homes, apartments, and housing. Find where and how to apply for section 8 near you below. Public housing authorities in New Hampshire offer both long term subsidies as well as emergency section 8 housing vouchers across the state.

This is an income based program but also an indirect form of financial aid. What that means is both the federal government HUD organization as well as the section 8 recipient both contribute funds towards their monthly rent, as that is what the voucher does. In addition, section 8 can even pay for a mortgage too. This means that section 8 housing is a form of “hand-up” and not “hand-out”.

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program also mandates self-sufficiency in the state as well. Low income families, single adults, and others need to participate in Family-Self Sufficiency or case management. This includes job programs, credit counseling and more.

There are public housing authorities across New Hampshire that provide requirements as well as applications to section 8 in New Hampshire. There is often a waiting list in place. Note for the vulnerable, such as low income seniors or disabled, they can often apply for emergency section 8 vouchers, even online. All rental units available are also in the private rental or housing market. Apply for, or get information, at a local housing authority. A listing of agencies and organizations to apply to in New Hampshire for Section 8 rental assistance are listed below.
