OUR MISSION  

In keeping with the rural character of the hamlets and villages of the Town of Southampton, the mission of the Southampton Housing Authority is to develop affordable mixed-income housing opportunities.

 Housing Choice Voucher Program

(aka Section 8 Housing)

The Housing Choice Voucher Program (aka known as Section 8 Housing) provides assistance for low income families in the private rental market through the Housing Assistance Payments Program.

 

Rental Voucher Holders select a unit from the private rental market.  Rental assistance makes market rate housing affordable.  Program participants normally pay no more than 30% of monthly adjusted income towards rent and utilities.  The Housing Assistance Payment subsidizes the balance of the rent to the property owner.
