Section 8

Housing Choice Voucher Program

The East Greenwich Housing Authority administers a Housing Choice Voucher program, which assists low and moderate income families and individuals to live in privately owned rental units.

We are not currently issuing any vouchers, but notice of our waiting list opening is published in the Providence Journal, the Northeast Independent, The East Greenwich Pendulum and here on our website.

If you own a rental property in East Greenwich, we can refer potential tenants to you. The rent limits are attached as well as samples of the paperwork required. We pay most – and in some cases, all – of the rent and it is mailed to you by the 5th business day of each month. Applicants are screened according to federal regulations.

The Housing Choice Voucher Program has other benefits such as:

  • Free “Become a Better Landlord” classes
  • Landlord hotline for answers and referral
  • Protection from changes in the housing market
  • Highly motivated prescreened tenants

Learn everything you need to know to start getting all of the benefits that the Housing Choice Voucher Program offers. You’ll get information on guaranteed rents, 0% loans, free advertising, and all the other great features of this free program just for landlords.

This program also gives you:

  • Guaranteed rent check paid promptly every month!
  • Free advertising for your vacancies
