The Housing Choice Voucher Program (commonly referred to as Section 8) issues vouchers that pay a portion of the monthly rent for privately owned units. The Housing Authority of Elgin screens applicants and provides eligible households with a voucher (also referred to as subsidy). Vouchers may be used to lease a unit from any landlord in Elgin eligible to participate in the program.

 

Households in this program earn 30% of area median income or less to qualify, and pay the portion of rent and utilities not covered by the voucher - typically 30 to 40% of their monthly income.

 

Eligibility requirements for the Housing Choice Voucher Program differ from those of other programs.

 

The HAE administers 913 vouchers for participants who reside in approved privately owned housing throughout a large portion of Kane County and Elgin’s Cook County.
