Housing Choice Voucher Program Section 8



Have you recently lost your job? Or have you had your hours reduced? Are you unable to pay your current tenant share?Ā If so, you may be eligible for a change in the tenant share you pay your property owner.


To get started, email the Leased Housing Gateway Team at gateway@metrohousingboston.org. Be sure to include the name of the head of household and current address.


Please note: This process only applies to current voucher program participants with Metro Housing through Section 8, MRVP, or COC.
