Caswell County Section (8) Housing provides rental assistance to low income individuals and 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.


Attention Participants: 

Please be sure to remember the "5" day rule. Income is money or any other gain received for the purpose of an individual's family's well being. It must be reported in writing to the office within 5 days of hire date and/or receiving of income.

We need your help to locate housing for the participants who have been qualified for our program.
