I was laid off due to COVID-19. How do I get Section 8 (low-income Housing Choice Voucher rental assistance)?

MSHDA’s Housing Choice Voucher program provides federal rent subsidies for very low-income people.

  • Applications are only accepted for open waiting lists.
  • For a list of open waiting lists visit and click the Rental tab, followed by the Housing Choice Voucher link, where you will find the “HCV Waiting List Information” link.
  • If assistance with completing the application is required due to a disability, please call Toll free: 1-855-646-7432
