Section 8 Housing

Housing Choice Voucher

The Campbellsville Housing & Redevelopment Authority (CHRA) administers the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program for the City of Campbellsville and Taylor County, Kentucky.  Housing Assistance Payments (HAP) are funded by the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Eligibility for the HCV program is determined by family size and total family income.

Currently, the waiting list for the CHRA Section 8 HCV Program is “Open”.  This means that CHRA is accepting applications for the waiting list. When vouchers become available, the CHRA selects applicants from the top of the waiting list.  We do not have “Emergency” housing vouchers.

Important:  For Section 8 HCV applicants only.  As per our Section 8 Administrative Plan, any person or family is welcomed to apply for the Section 8 HCV program, but please be aware that our agency provides a “Residency Preference” for those families that are current residents of Taylor County, KY.  This means that any Taylor County resident will receive a higher placement on the waiting list than non-Taylor County residents.

After being approved and issued a voucher, the family selects a housing unit within Taylor County to be rented.  The unit may be a single family home, apartment, duplex, mobile home or other type of quality housing. The unit selected must not exceed the Section 8 payment standard and meet housing quality standards. The unit must pass an inspection performed by the CHRA Housing Inspector.  Section 8 participants will pay rent based on 30% – 40% of their annual adjusted income.

Please be advised that Section 8 voucher holders will likely be required to pay rental deposits, utility deposits, etc.
