When you hear the term 'Low Income Apartments' you probably think "Cheap Apartments'. That's the most general definition, but in most cases when you see the term 'Low Income Apartments' in Austin's apartment listings, they are actually referring to one of two programs offered through the Department of Housing and Urban Development.
In addition to public housing, the Department of Housing and Urban Development (aka HUD) offers rental assistance to those with low income through two programs:
This program allows HUD to help apartment owners offer reduced rates to low-income tenants.
This program allows you to find your own place and use the voucher to pay for all or part of the rent.
Apartments Finders can work with the tenants under the Section 8 program. Not every apartment in Austin works with Section 8, and it is not commonly advertised, so an Apartment Finder can really shorten your search!
The other important thing to remember with apartments that offer Section 8 is that while they are affordable, they still have a lot to offer. Some of the Austin apartments that work with Section 8 offer onsite daycare, playgrounds, pools, sports courts and more. If you are looking for an apartment that works with Section 8, contact us today at 381-2504 or fill out the form on this page, and we will start a custom search for you today!
