Section 8

The Housing Choice Voucher Section 8 Program application process is currently closed. At this time we do not have an estimated timeframe for reopening the application process.


The Housing Choice Voucher program (also known as Section 8) provides rental assistance to very low-income families, the elderly and the disabled who are seeking to find housing in the private rental market in the City of Roanoke. The program is designed so that the individual or family can find housing that has been inspected by RRHA in the neighborhood of their choice and use the voucher to help with the rent payment. RRHA continually develops partnerships with landlords to provide quality, affordable housing to Section 8 participants.
