Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program

The Housing Authority provides subsidies for low-income families to help them meet their monthly rent payments through the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. Applicants must meet income and citizenship criteria. Eligible rental housing must be in the City of Norwalk and meet health and safety standards. At this time, the Housing Authority is not accepting new applications due to the length of its waiting list.

If you applied for the Section 8 waiting list in 2007, click here to check your application status.

Landlords are always encouraged to participate. For more information, contact the Housing office at (562) 929-5588 or visit our Landlord Resource Page.
