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.

Private landlords in Oregon cannot deny a rental application based on the household's voucher.  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 Salem Housing Authority 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.

To be eligible for the Housing Choice Voucher program, you must:

  1. Meet income guidelines
  2. Pass a criminal background check
  3. Have at least one family member who is a citizen or legal resident of the U.S.

Apply for Salem Housing Authority's Housing Choice Voucher Program through the Section 8 Application.

Learn more about Housing Choice Vouchers on the HUD website.

Moderate Rehabilitation Program

The Moderate Rehabilitation Program (Mod Rehab) provides project-based rental assistance for low income families. Salem Housing Authority has entered into agreements with private property owners that offer rehabilitated rental units in the Salem-Keizer area.  We refer 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. 

To apply for the Moderate Rehabilitation Program, go to our applications page and select the "Mod Rehab" option within the Section 8 application.

Learn more about the Moderate Rehabiliation Program on the HUD website.
