Section 8 / HCV

The Section 8 Administrative Plan is a supporting document to Miami-Dade Public Housing and Community Development's PHA Plan. The purpose of the Section 8 Administrative Plan is to establish written policies in accordance with USHUD regulations and it contains PHCD's internal policies for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher, Section 8 programs.

Privately-owned rental housing is available for persons with low- and moderate income who will generally pay 30% of their adjusted income towards rent. See the income limits table for details.

Applicants for Miami-Dade County's subsidized rental housing programs are placed on a ranked waiting list compiled using a computerized random selection system. Read how to apply for subsidized rental housing.

Miami-Dade Public Housing and Community Development (PHCD) provides reasonable accommodation on its housing programs and services to persons with disabilities.

The Veterans Assisted Supportive Housing Program provides 50 rental vouchers to homeless veterans with severe psychiatric or substance abuse disorders. The program is administered in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Advertising and locating property has never been easier!

Public Housing and Community Development has partnered with GoSection8, which provides an enhanced program to list rental properties on line. Listings are available to potential Housing Choice Voucher tenants seeking apartment units, duplexes, single-family homes or townhomes in the private market. If you have any questions regarding registering, creating or viewing property listings, please contact the GoSection8 toll free help line at 1-866-466-7328.

Fair Market Rents

View a table that depicts fair market rents for different-sized dwellings. Figures are updated every year.

Housing Choice Voucher Program

The program allows tenants to choose their unit in the private housing market. Although the agency can provide help with locating a unit, the family is ultimately responsible for locating a suitable unit.

Moderate Rehabilitation Rental Program

This federally-funded, housing rental program provides assistance to very low-income individual and families in privately-owned, rehabilitated, multifamily buildings.

Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy Program

The Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy Program provides project-based rental assistance in privately-owned rehabilitated buildings on behalf of very low and low-income single, homeless individuals. The rental assistance is tied to the owner, so participants do not keep the rental assistance in the event that they move.
