The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) designated the North Carolina Commission of Indian Affairs as a Public Housing Agency in 1976. This designation gave the commission authority to provide rent assistance through the operation of Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.
The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is the federal government’s major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly and the disabled to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing for eligible families regardless of race, religion or political affiliation in the private market. Program funds are awarded to the program by HUD through Annual Contributions Contracts and are used to subsidize the difference between the cost of rent and a maximum of 30 percent of the household’s adjusted gross income.
The program’s service areas include the counties of Granville, Hoke, Person, Sampson and Warren. Rent assistance is provided on a limited basis to eligible families in Halifax and Columbus counties through special agreements with local public housing authorities. For housing assistance in other counties, please contact your local public housing authority.
For additional information about the program, please call 919-807-4440.
