Our Goal

The Housing Choice Voucher Program is the federal government’s major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe and sanitary housing in the private market. Since housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses and apartments.

For more information regarding the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development’s Housing Choice Voucher Program, please follow this link http://www.hud.gov/offices/pih/programs/hcv/about/fact_sheet.cfm to review the Housing Choice Voucher Fact Sheet.

Mission Statement
It is the mission of the Section 8 Rental Assistance (Housing Choice Voucher) Program to provide adequate and professional service in enabling families to choose their place of residency within the City of Camden through a housing choice voucher and through project based vouchers.

Currently the program has 1,444 housing choice vouchers and 239 project based vouchers

Advertising and locating property has never been easier!

The Housing Authority has partnered with GoSection8.com, which provides an enhanced program to list rental properties online. Listings are available to potential Housing Choice Voucher tenants seeking apartment units, duplexes, single-family homes or townhomes in the private market. If you have any questions regarding registering, creating or viewing property listings, please contact the GoSection8 toll free helpline at 1-866-466-7328.
