Housing Choice Vouchers (Section 8)

The Lake Cumberland Housing Agency administers Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) that is funded by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  Eligibility for the HCV program is determined by your total family income.

This program allows the family to choose the location of the home to be rented.  For example, after being approved for the issuance of a voucher, the family selects a home in the city/county to be rented and this could be a single family home, apartment, or other type of quality housing.  The home selected must be affordable and meet housing quality standards.

A portion of the rent is paid directly to the landlord on behalf of a family.

The following form lists the obligations of all participants of the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
