The Housing Choice Voucher Program, which used to be called Section 8, is a program where you find housing and the government helps you to pay for it. How much rental assistance you are given is based on your income and family size. Not all rentals will accept these vouchers, but we can help you understand how to find the right place for you and your family.
The Housing Choice Voucher Program does have a long waitlist — sometimes people wait two years until a spot is available. If you need housing right now, please call Housing Transitions at (814) 237-5508.
To see if you qualify for the Housing Choice Voucher Program, call (814) 355-6750 and dial extension 1.
The Housing Choice Voucher/Section 8 housing office is located at 121-123 Beaver Farm Lane, Bellefonte, PA 16823. Please telephone the office prior to your visit in order to confirm that staff will be available to assist you upon your arrival.
