Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8 Rental Assistance)
MVAC administers a rental assistance program in Faribault and Le Sueur Counties. Assistance for the Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8 Rental Assistance) is based upon the income and family size. The family will be issued a voucher for their county based upon the size of the family, not the unit. Program participants should expect to pay approximately 30% of their adjusted gross monthly income towards rent and tenant-paid utilities. Applicants must meet the very low income guidelines established for each county.
As of October 1, 2014 MVAC will only be accepting and processing applications for applicants that are considered established residents of either Faribault or Le Sueur County. The only preference or priority that we offer is that of residency. To be eligible for this preference you must be an “established” resident of either Faribault or Le Sueur County at the time of application. The waiting list is closed to non-resident applicants.
The actual application for this program is not available online. For further information or, to request an application packet regarding the program, the attached “Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8 Rental Assistance) Inquiry Form” can be completed. You can also contact our County Specialist in either Faribault or Le Sueur County.
Additional information for both counties regarding the current Utility Allowance Schedules, Five Year Plans, Annual Plan Updates, as well as the Administrative Plans are available through the following links.
