Housing Choice Voucher Program/Section 8

The Housing Choice Voucher Program represents the federal government’s primary program for the provision of decent, safe, affordable housing for low income families, the elderly and the disabled. Participants in the program are assisted in privately owned rental units. The portion of the rent determined to be beyond the participant’s ability to pay is paid directly to the owner of the rental unit. The rental unit must meet housing quality standards established by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Section 8 Rental Vouchers and Certificates are rental assistance programs wherein the Authority pay the difference between 30% of the tenants adjusted monthly income and the fair market rent to a private landlord on behalf of such tenant. The private units under this program must be of the appropriate size and meet HUD's required Housing Quality Standards.

Public Housing Program

The United States Housing Act of 1937 created the Public Housing Program as a means to provide decent, safe, affordable housing for eligible low income families, the elderly and the disabled. Staunton Redevelopment and Housing Authority has been helping those since our buildings were built.

We currently offer two different apartment complexes consisting of Elizabeth Miller Gardens and Farrier Court. We have 50 units designated for the elderly and disabled between the two complexes and the units range from one bedroom to five bedroom townhouses. Rent is based on income and utilites are included.
