BOWLING GREEN, Mo. -- After turning away Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher applicants for more than a year, the North East Community Action Corp. announced it will begin taking applications again this month for the federally funded vouchers.
NECAC has been unable to accept applications since January 2011 because all of its allocated Section 8 vouchers and funding have been spoken for.
Funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, Section 8 vouchers subsidize a portion of rent for private housing for income-qualified families and individuals.
