To be eligible for the Section 8 Advantage (S8A) Program you must be currently receiving rental assistance from the Housing Voucher program (Section 8) including NEDS and VASH or be living in a Project Based Voucher unit. 

No matter where you are in life such as receiving TANF, being unemployed, if you are a student, working part time or even if you are employed full time, you can participate.  If you are looking for the golden ticket, S8A is the best place to start.   Regardless of your income level, even if you have no income, you are eligible.  S8A that will give you confidence, resources, budgeting and credit repair, encouragement and opportunity to earn an escrow savings account as your earned income increases!

S8A program is for a maximum of five years.  It is the only program that is known to reward you at completion of your S8 Advantage contract, by giving you money!  No strings attached!  The only requirement is that by the time you complete the contract you are suitably employed and off TANF cash assistance for 12 consecutive months.  You can use the escrow funds to help you buy a home with our Section 8 Homeownership Program, further your education, start a business, or plan for future goals.  It is all up to you!
HOSWWA has given away over $650,000 to more than 197 program graduates.  Several families are now living in homes they bought using their escrow accounts as a down payment. 

Come and discover the Golden Ticket and let’s get started in planning your goals for success!
