Section 8 Housing in Delaware

The Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) is a federal program that provides financial assistance for housing to those who qualify. The program allows low-income families and individuals, the elderly, and persons with disabilities to live in privately owned homes or apartments that are available for rent.
