The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is a federal rental assistance program and the TBRA Program is a state rental assistance program, both administered by the Housing Authority for families throughout Okanogan County. The purpose of these programs is to provide rental assistance for decent, safe, sanitary, and affordable housing to low-income families, including seniors and disabled persons. To qualify for these programs, a family’s annual income may not exceed 50% of the median income for Okanogan County, as established by HUD and listed by family size below:

1 Person 2 Person 3 Person 4 Person 5 Person 6 Person $20,300 $23,200 $26,100 $28,950 $31,300 $33,600

Both programs offer tenant based rental assistance to families in privately owned housing of their choice. The rental subsidy amount is based on a payment standard set by the Housing Authority based on the Fair Market Rents for Okanogan County and set by HUD. An assisted family can expect to pay 30 to 40 percent of their income toward rent and utilities. Information on the programs is available at the Housing Authority Office.
