The Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) is the federal government’s major program that assists very-low and low-income families, including the elderly and the disabled, to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing in the private market.

As Volusia County’s public housing agency, the Community Assistance Division administers approximately 322 housing choice vouchers. This is the first time the county has opened its Section 8 waiting list since 2009.
