Can I apply for Section 8 in a different state?
Subsequently, one may also ask, can I transfer my Section 8 to a different state?
Because housing needs may change due to family or employment changes, you can move your Section 8 benefits to another state as soon as you receive a voucher. However, new Section 8 tenants who want to move their vouchers to another state need to have lived in the initial PHA's jurisdiction at the time of application.
Also, can I apply for Section 8 in a different county? Although this type of closure is not permanent, it may be beneficial to look for Section 8 housing in another county or metropolitan area if your local office is not open to new applicants.
Also asked, can you apply for Section 8 in more than one state?
Many housing programs give “residency preference.” This means people who live in the area go to the top of the waiting list, and you go to the bottom. On the other hand, not all housing programs have this preference.
