Section 8 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. There are approximately 300 Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancies in Miami-Dade County.

  • Eligibility

    • New admissions must be very low-income (equal to or below 50 percent of the area median income). See the income limits table for details.
    • Individuals must be 18 years or older, be on the street, in a shelter or transitional housing.
  • Contact Providers to Apply

    The Moderate Rehabilitation Single Room Occupancy Program provides rental assistance to building or structure owners of rehabilitated units on behalf of very low and low-income single, homeless individuals. See the income limits table for details.

    Under this program, owners rent the rehabilitated units to homeless individuals, who are required to pay no more than 30% of their annual adjusted income as rent. When structure rehabilitation is complete, the owner enters into a 10-year contract with Miami-Dade Public Housing and Community Development.

    Structures may be of any type – with or without a kitchen and sanitary facilities in each unit, depending on the requirements of the local code. The maximum number of Moderate Rehabilitation Single Rooms allowed in any building is 100. If existing tenants are living in the building prior to structure rehabilitation, the owner is responsible for their relocation and all associated costs. The cost of the rehabilitation is included in the rents.
