Housing Choice Voucher Program

 (Section 8) 

Welcome to the Burbank Housing Authority (BHA). The Burbank Housing Authority provides tenant-based rental assistance through the Federal Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8). The Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV) 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.  A housing subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by the Public Housing Agency (PHA) on behalf of the participating family. The family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.

The Program is responsible for over 1,000 Section 8 Vouchers for households whose incomes fall below 50% of the median household income in Los Angeles County. For additional information on the Program please call 818.238.5160.

The Section 8 Waiting List is closed until further notice.
