West Virginia Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.

The West Virginia Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program helps low income families, the disabled, and seniors with paying their rent. There may also be rent subsidized apartments available to clients, and the units will be both safe and affordable to live in.

The federal government funds the HUD program, with local PHAs accepting applications as well as managing the wait lists. The goal of the HUD voucher is to help the vulnerable, working poor, and low income so that they have a place to live. The financial assistance from Section 8 is for West Virginia residents to help them with paying their rent as well as other housing expenses.

The local Public Housing Authorities to apply at for a Housing Choice Voucher are noted below. Families should call a site in their town or county. Note the assistance is limited and there is often a waiting list in West Virginia, however priority for a section 8 voucher may be given to the disabled or elderly.
