Abstract:

At its core, the Section 8 housing voucher program represents a partnership between the private sector, which builds and maintains the housing occupied by voucher holders, and the public sector, which provides a subsidy to make the housing affordable to low-income families. For 30 years, this partnership has worked well, delivering decent-quality housing to millions of low-income families at costs that, over the long term, are lower than those of other forms of housing assistance.
