The Section 8 Program often referred to as Rent Assistance and is designed to help low and moderate income families rent privately owned housing. The rental subsidy known as a housing assistance payment is paid directly to the property owner or designated payee each month. This program is available to a limited number of families and allows them to pay approximately 30% to 40% of their income towards their monthly rent. The program pays the balance of the rent directly to the landlord in the form of a monthly check. THE HACM RENT ASSISTANCE WAIT LIST IS CURRENTLY CLOSED and NOT ACCEPTING NEW APPLICATIONS. -- Landlords may list available properties with the program and receive referrals of potential renters. To receive an owner's packet that contains complete information about landlord participation in the program, please contact the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee.
