Section 8 & Public Housing
Section 8 or housing choice vouchers are rental assistance from the federal government that can be obtained from a local housing authority.
To locate your local housing authorities, search the list provided by the US Department of HUD.
If you are looking for information on porting your voucher to North Carolina, first contact your current housing authority.
Section 8 project-based units are apartments that are subsidized by the government and are cheaper than market-rate units. To see a list of some of these apartments in your area, click here.
We also have county resource guides that list affordable housing that accepts Section 8 vouchers. For more information, click here.
