Section 8/Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV)

Section 8, single family, multifamily, public housing, FHA, what’s the difference? How does it all work together? Why are the rules so different? From rental assistance and guaranteed mortgages to loans, grants, and tax credits, over $60 billion federal dollars are allocated every year to programs designed for making housing more affordable. In this webinar, we will look at affordable housing from a high-level and answer common questions like:

  • What does “affordable housing” actually mean?
  • What is the difference between Section 8 and Public Housing and other common programs?
  • How can you get help or find more information?

Finally, your opportunity to make sense of it all. For the experienced property management staff or manager to the new non-profit or public housing employee, this webinar is for anyone looking to gain a better grasp on the dizzying world of affordable housing.
