Muncie Housing Authority

Housing Choice Voucher

The Housing Choice Voucher Program, often called Section 8, is the Federal Government's major program for helping very low-income families, the elderly and disabled to afford decent, safe and affordable housing.

Muncie Housing Authority (MHA) screens applicants for the program and provides eligible households with a Housing Choice Voucher, which allows participants to rent a privately owned home.

A voucher holder can rent a unit from any owner willing to participate in the program. This distinguishes the program from the Low Income Public Housing program in which tenants are assigned to units which are Agency owned. MHA currently has the potential to fund 842 Vouchers.

The program also now uses a Lottery System to establish a waiting list for the voucher program. When the waiting list opens, it will be advertised in the local media and the applications would be available for one day as a hard copy and several days as a downloadable file on our web site.
