The Landlord Guide to the Section 8
Housing Program is being given to you as part of your initial program briefing. It contains a great deal of information
and should answer many of the questions you have regarding the Section 8 Program.
The Section 8 Tenant-Based Assistance Program administered by The Tampa Housing Authority, (THA) is funded by the United
States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the purpose of the program is to make decent, safe and sanitary
housing affordable to very-low, and extremely low income households in the private rental market.
Households that meet eligibility requirements normally pay approximately 30% to 40% of their adjusted monthly income
towards their monthly rent and utility costs. The program pays the balance of the rent directly to the owner of the rental
property or to their appointed agent.
In order for the Section 8 Program to be successful, it is vital that a good working relationship is developed between
Tampa Housing Authority and property owners and managers who contract with the THA to provide housing for program
participants. One of the goals of this guide is to provide landlords with all the information they will need to be
successful not only renting to a Section 8 participant, but as a landlord in general.
