Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8)
The Wheeling Housing Authority administers a HUD-funded Housing Choice Voucher Program (formerly Section 8). The voucher program is for low-income individuals who wish to live in privately-owned housing and receive rental subsidy. Rental assistance is based on no less than 30 percent and no more than 40 percent of a tenant's annual adjusted income. You must be 18 years old.
The waiting list for a voucher is currently approximately one year. Applications can be picked up at the Main Office. For more information, please call the Housing Choice Voucher Program Department at (304) 242-9412 extension 1101, 1103, or 1106.
