Rental Assistance (The Section 8 Housing Assistance Program)
The Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles (HACoLA) serves the City of Rosemead and provides Section 8 assistance to the residents. HACoLA provides rental assistance through the Federal Section 8 Voucher program. The primary objective of the Section 8 Voucher Rental Assistance program is to assist low-income (0 to 50% of MFI) persons and households, including those who are homeless or in danger of becoming homeless, in making rents affordable. Families may initially pay up to 40% of their adjusted monthly income for rent. HACoLA will pay the remaining rent (with certain limitations) directly to the landlord.
