Do County Case Workers Have Lists of Section 8 Rental Housing?

County caseworkers with the Department of Health and Human Services often have established partnerships with the state's Housing Authority to provide referrals to Section 8 or low-income housing. A list of section 8 properties and eligibility requirements is often available through the housing authority office.

The resources a caseworker can provide varies by county, but in many cases, caseworkers can provide information about state agencies and charitable organizations that sponsor emergency shelters, process section 8 housing applications and provide housing for the disabled. Caseworkers may also have information or resources for residents to receive financial assistance to maintain their current living situations.
