Low income apartments, or Section 8 housing, are a part of federal, state, and local government programs that provide housing solutions to help low income families and individuals. Today's Section 8 housing program actually stems from the Housing Act of 1937 which was created to help U.S. citizens pay rent during the Great Depression. Fast forward about 40 years to the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974 which added a few tweaks, and Section 8 housing was finalized.
To qualify for low income housing a family's income may not exceed 50% of the median income for the county or metropolitan area in which the family choose to live.
