To be eligible for Section 8 assistance, a family must be income-eligible, and must complete an application at the Johnston County HAPP office. All heads of households must be at least 18 years old. No household member can have a violent or drug-related criminal record within the past three years of becoming eligible on the waiting list.
To initially be income-eligible, the family's annual gross income cannot exceed the following income limits. This is based on household family size.
The only exceptions to the above income limits for determining eligibility are:
* Continuously assisted under the public housing or Section 8 programs;
* Non-purchasing households in the following homeownership programs: HOPE 1, HOPE 2, or other HUD-assisted multifamily home ownership programs covered under 24 CFR 284.173;
* Displaced as a result of the prepayment of a mortgage or voluntary termination of a mortgage insurance contract.
