Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program
Fairmont Morgantown Housing Authority
Section 8 of the Housing Act of 1937 was designed to assist income-eligible families to rent safe, decent, and affordable housing. Since then the Section 8 Program has assisted literally hundreds of thousands of families to afford suitable housing, who otherwise would have been homeless, or living in substandard housing. Over the years the Section 8 Rental Assistance Program has been enhanced to provide opportunities such as savings accounts toward education or business start-up, and various home ownership options.
The Fairmont-Morgantown Housing Authority is committed to delivering these opportunities to any and all families that qualify for such assistance within our jurisdiction of Marion, Monongalia, Preston, and Taylor Counties. You can get much needed help for your rental expenses, saving you possibly up to 70% of your monthly adjusted income.
