HUD Created by U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), public housing program provides decent and safe rental housing for eligible low-income families.

All applicants must meet the eligibility requirements set forth by HUD. The program generally serves households with incomes up to 80% of the area median income.

The wait for public housing varies, depending on the size of your family and the length of the waiting list. It may take up to a year from the approval date of your application before an offer of tenancy is made.

Housing Choice Voucher Program a rental assistance program by HUD — known as Section 8, that is designed for families with low incomes to afford decent and safe housing outside of the public housing system.

Section 8 is one of the housing programs that comes in the form of subsidies. Through the voucher system, the recipient searches for an apartment in private market and pays about 40% of their income for rent, while the rest is paid with federal money.

In general, waiting lists for Section 8 are longer than public housing. However, unlike public housing, if you get a voucher, you can use it anywhere in the state.
