Housing Agency List
Section 8 housing is a nickname given to the Housing Choice Voucher program. In order to participate, individuals must meet specific qualifications regarding lower than average income and family size. Qualifying families and individuals will then receive a “voucher” for rent assistance, and most of the time, can choose between inspected and certified homes in safe, low income neighborhoods for a much lower price than the average person would pay.
Property managers may run a credit check before renting to potential tenants. Negative marks may lead rejection or further delays in the already long process.
Knowing your credit score can make a difference when applying for jobs, credit cards, loans and benefit assistance programs. It is important to identify and fix issues with your credit score. Click the link below and get your score for free.
