Get Section 8 from Weymouth Housing Authority Quickly

Housing has become harder and harder to afford for many families, especially for apartments with decent amenities and those in safe neighborhoods. Fortunately, there are housing vouchers available from the Weymouth Housing Authority that can help you and your family better afford housing in and around the city. The application process for getting such vouchers is often difficult and drawn out, but DoNotPay is here to help! If you require housing assistance but are overwhelmed by the application process, read on below to learn more about how DoNotPay can make the whole ordeal much easier.

Who Is Eligible for Low-Income Housing in Weymouth?

Not just anyone who wants housing assistance is eligible for Section 8 housing vouchers in Weymouth, Massachusetts. Currently, those who are eligible for Section 8 housing vouchers must:

  • Have valid U.S. citizenship status or eligible immigration status
  • Provide social security numbers of family members
  • Adhere to the housing authority's definition of a family
  • Make less than the income restrictions

Income restrictions for Section 8 are determined by the median income of a specified area, and the vouchers are intended to help families keep their housing costs at or below 50% of their income. Section 8 housing vouchers are often prioritized for those who have at least one adult household member who works 32 hours per week or more, or households with a head of household that is 62 years of age or older.

Where Can You Find Eligible Housing?

People who receive housing vouchers can use them to live in an area they choose, but the rental property must be pre-approved. Landlords can apply to make their rental properties eligible for Section 8 housing vouchers, and the vouchers pay a portion of the rent they plan to charge for their property.

You can get a list of available pre-approved rental properties by contacting the Weymouth Housing Authority or visiting the office between 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM Monday through Friday.  You can also find a list of properties that are funded or managed by the housing authority on the Properties & Voucher Programs page of the Weymouth Housing Authority website.

Applying for Housing With the Weymouth Housing Authority on Your Own

To apply for low-income housing in Weymouth, you will have to follow these steps:

  1. Visit the public housing application page and create an account
  2. Follow the on-screen prompts, and fill out the forms as completely and accurately as possible
  3. Submit your application and wait to hear if you are on the waiting list
  4. If you are placed on the waiting list, wait until you are granted a housing authority voucher
  5. Search for an applicable apartment or housing district

This process is lengthy, and the Weymouth Housing Authority website can be confusing to navigate. The housing authority updates information occasionally, so it's helpful to check back frequently to see if there are new eligibility guidelines or waiting list information.
