The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is available in all six counties in CIRHA’s service area. Included are the counties of Boone, Dallas, Jasper, Madison, Marion, and Story, excluding the cities of Knoxville & Pella in Marion county.
Families are responsible for locating a unit that is eligible for the program. The family will pay rent to the landlord based on between 30 to 40 percent of the family’s gross monthly adjusted income. CIRHA will form a contract with the landlord to pay the difference directly to the landlord on behalf of the family.
