Salem Housing Authority receives funding from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer two Section 8 Programs, the Housing Choice Voucher Program, and Moderate Rehabilitation Program.

What are Housing Choice Vouchers?
The housing choice voucher program is the federal government's major program for assisting very low-income families, elderly, and persons needing special features or accommodations to to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private rental market. Many private landlords accept vouchers.  Voucher holders may choose their own housing in the private rental market, including single-family homes, townhouses and apartments that meet  minimum standards of health and safety. 
This unit may include the family's current rental unit.   A subsidy is paid to the landlord directly by SHA on behalf of the participating family, and the family then pays the difference between the actual rent charged by the landlord and the amount subsidized by the program.

What is the Moderate Rehabilitation Program?
The Moderate Rehabilitation Program (Mod Rehab) provides project-based rental assistance for low income families. SHA has entered into agreements with private property owners that offer rehabilitated rental units in the Salem-Keizer area.  SHA refers eligible housing applicants to these properties when there are vacancies.  One property is a 10-unit apartment complex with 1, 2 & 3 bedroom units located on Appleblossom NE in Salem.  Tenant rent is based on monthly income as determined by program guidelines,  minus an allowance for utilities the tenant is responsible to pay. 

The other property is a Single Room Occupancy Unit (SRO) located on Coral Street NE in Salem.
The SRO units offer housing for eligible single women. The site features handicapped accessible units and furnished bedrooms with shared kitchen, restroom and community space.  Tenant rent is based on monthly income and all utilities excluding telephone are invluded. Priority is given to homeless single women, although single non-homeless women may also be served when there are adequate vacancies.
