EHA currently administers a program of rental assistance payments to private owners on behalf of eligible low-income families under Section 8 of the Housing and Urban Development Act of 1974. The program provides payments covering the difference between the maximum rental on a dwelling unit, as approved by HUD, and the amount of rent contribution by a participating family (generally 30% of income), the Housing Authority earns an administrative fee for each voucher assisted under this program. We currently assist 40 families under this program.
