The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program
also has a mobility component. A Section Eight
Housing Choice Voucher issued by the Framingham
Housing Authority can be used anywhere in the
United States, including Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
In the case that you do find an apartment, the
amount you and the Framingham Housing Authority
pay to the landlord will be determined and
written into the lease and contract. There are
payment standards that are based on the number
of bedrooms in the unit. After the lease and
contract have been signed and executed, you and
the Framingham Housing Authority will each send
a share of the rent directly to the landlord.
Families under The Section 8 Housing Choice
Voucher Program are also eligible to participate
in the Family
Self Sufficiency Program. This program has
been very successful thus far.
Landlords can also list available units for
rent with our office.
