The Housing Choice Voucher Program, commonly known as Section 8, is one of the largest federally funded housing programs for low-income families. This program, operated by the Passaic County Public Housing Agency, subsidizes a tenant's rent payments based on family income. The program provides several benefits to landlords, including:
- Consistent and timely rent payment
- Free marketing to advertise available apartments
- Consistent customer base
- Inspections to ensure the apartment is in good condition and to prevent tenant damage
- Ensures that local paperwork requirements are met.
