About Bloomington Housing Authority

The Bloomington HRA's Housing Choice Voucher Program (previously Section 8) assists 551 households with rent assistance for privately owned rental units such as apartments, duplexes and single-family homes. The program is open to all income-qualified people including seniors, families and people with disabilities. The Voucher Program provides affordable housing to the greatest number of people of any housing program in the city.

The participant household pays a minimum of 30 percent of household income as rent, with the Voucher Program paying the difference to the landlord. The rental unit must also pass annual Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspections to qualify. The unit selected must be a non-luxury unit and rent for a reasonable amount in comparison to other similar units in the market.

Due to great demand and limited funding from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the HRA opens the program's waiting list to new applicants only when the current waiting list has been exhausted.

The HRA accomplishes its mission through various programs: rental assistance, housing rehabilitation, first-time home buyer assistance and other development and redevelopment programs. Funding comes from federal, state, regional and local sources.
