The Section 8 Housing Program is a federally funded program that helps low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled pay for housing. The program is administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and local public housing agencies (PHAs) administer the program at the state and local level. In St. Luis Obispo (SLO), the program is administered by the Housing Authority. Eligible participants can receive rental assistance in the form of vouchers or direct rent payments to help cover the costs of housing. However, there is a very tedious application process required by the SLO Housing Authority just to confirm eligibility. Fortunately, DoNotPay saves you  time and frustration by sending a letter on your behalf to determine if your situation qualifies for the Section 8 voucher.
