Section 8

Baltimore City Family

Does Dominion Management accept Section 8 vouchers?
Yes, Dominion Management is proud to participate in Baltimore City’s Housing Choice Voucher Program. We accept Section 8 vouchers on all of our rental properties.

What is the Section 8 program?
Section 8, or the Housing Choice Voucher Program, helps low income families afford housing through the use of federal funds.

How do I get a Section 8 voucher?

There is a waiting list to get a Section 8 voucher. A person wishing to get a voucher must apply through the Housing Choice Voucher Program. The program will evaluate the person’s financial stance and will offer a voucher to qualified low-income individuals. The amount of housing assitance recieved from the Section 8 subsidized program depends on the individual’s income. Once a voucher is given to a person, the individual has 60 – 180 days to find a home that meets Section 8′s requirements.

Where can I go to find a house that is approved by Section 8?
The Housing Choice Voucher Program has a website where Baltimore City landlords can post their available properties. To view Section 8′s website click here. Dominion Management advertises all of our rental properties on this website. It is important to note that the properties posted on  the Section 8 website are not already approved by the Baltimore City Housing Choice Voucher Program. Once a landlord accepts a Section 8 voucher holder’s application, he must pass a Section 8 inspection to get approval to lease the property to a Section 8 tenant.

Does Dominion Management have a lot of experience with the Section 8 program?
Yes, Dominion Management has been working with the Baltimore City Housing Choice Voucher Program for more than six years. We are very familiar with the steps that need to be taken from application submission to lease signing to our Section 8 tenant moving in. Our Section 8 applicants will not have to worry about anything after the application is approved. Dominion Management will work with the Housing Choice Voucher Program to ensure that everything runs smoothly.

If I just got a Section 8 voucher, how do I get started on finding a new home?
Section 8 voucher holders should check Dominion Management’s rental site for properties. You may also find Dominion Management on the Section 8 website. We have properties that are available now as well as properties that are still being renovated. If you are interested in a house that is still being renovated, but have to move soon, we still urge you to apply. We may be able to speed up the renovation so that you can move in quickly. If you’d like to apply for one of our properties online, please fill out the online application.
