Section 8 Program ‹ Housing Authority of the City of Paterson New Jersey

About the Housing Choice Voucher Program

PHA provides rental assistance to low-income families in the private rental market through the Housing Choice Voucher Program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The program, formerly known as Section 8, was created by the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, as amended.

The PHA staff verifies eligibility for admission to the Section 8 Voucher Program prior to the issuance of a voucher when families submit the HUD required documentation.  Included in the admission process is the screening for criminal and/or drug related activities, criminal background check, background check and Earned Income Verification and Sexual Offenders.  Admission procedures are identified in the Admission and Continued Occupancy Policy.

Admission Preferences – Residents who live and/or work in the City of Paterson.  Everything being equal, the deciding factor will be the date and time of receiving the application and/or through a controlled lottery system.

Section 8 extensions are given on standard 60 day period to search for a unit if there has been difficulty in locating an apartment due to a tight housing market; family illness or lead abatement.

For more information regarding Section 8 Housing Vouchers, please contact 973-345-5080.
