THE HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER (SECTION 8) APPLICANT LIST IS CLOSED.
The Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program is limited to extremely low income families and individuals. The Wilkes-Barre Housing Authority (WBHA) determines your eligibility based on:
- Annual gross income;
- Whether you qualify as elderly, a person with a disability, or as a family under general occupancy; and
- U.S. citizenship or eligible immigration status.
If you are eligible, the WBHA will check your rental history, references, and other factors to make sure you and your family will be good tenants. The WBHA will deny admission to any applicant whose habits and practices may be expected to have a detrimental effect on other tenants or on the project’s environment.
