The Milwaukee County Housing Division administers the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program, which is federally funded by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD). This program is designed to accommodate very low-income families and individuals with rent assistance for decent, safe, and sanitary housing provided by private owners and rental agents.
The Housing Division serves as the recognized public housing authority (PHA) for the Milwaukee County (excluding the Cities of Milwaukee, West Allis and Wauwatosa).
Voucher holders may seek available housing within this area. Housing Assistance can also be transferred to other locations in the continental United States for eligible families.
