The Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Tenant Based Program administered by the Muskogee
Housing Authority (MHA) is funded by the US Dept. of Housing & Urban Development
(HUD). The purpose of the program is to make decent, safe and sanitary housing affordable
to very-low income households in the private rental market. Households that meet
eligibility requirements normally pay approximately 30% of their adjusted monthly
income toward the monthly rent and utility cost. The program pays the balance of
the rent directly to the owner of the rental property or to their appointed agent,
up to the published HUD maximum amounts.
