HUD Section 8 Program

NDHFA ensures the continued availability of safe, decent and affordable rental housing for low-income, elderly or disabled households by administering U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) rental assistance contracts.

Am I Eligible?

Household eligibility is subject to income qualification requirements with tenants generally required to pay 30 percent of their adjusted monthly gross income as rent.

The apartment must be the household's sole residence and under no circumstances may any tenant benefit from more than one rent subsidy.

Criminal background checks are mandatory. All applicants age 18 or older will be screened.

Documentation of citizenship or eligible immigration status is required.

Full-time students enrolled at an institution of higher learning are subject to additional eligibility requirements.

The eligibility requirements listed are not inclusive. Additional qualifications may apply.

How Do I Apply?

These rental units are located in communities across the state. Application is made directly to the property managers/owners. NDHFA can provide a list of statewide properties that participate in the Section 8 program.
