The Housing Authority of Owensboro (HAO) administers Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) that are funded by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Eligibility for the HCV program is determined by your total family income.
After being approved, the family selects a home in the city to be rented and this could be a single family home, apartment, duplex, trailer or other type of quality housing. The home selected must not exceed Section 8 payment standard and meet housing quality standard. Please be aware, Section 8 participates may have to pay rental deposits, utility deposits, etc.
For more information, please contact the Section 8 department at 270-683-5365. You may also download the Section 8 housing application, complete it and bring it by the Housing Authority office.
