Legislation Introduced to Restructure Section 8 Program

Thursday, May 1, 2003 - 1:45AM

Legislation introduced this week by Sen. Wayne Allard (R-Colo.) and Rep. Bob Ney (R-Ohio) would radically restructure the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program. If passed, S. 947 and H.R. 1841, would rename the voucher program Housing Assistance for Needy Families (HANF) and the federal government would no longer have an obligation to fund individual vouchers. Instead, the program would be converted into a block grant, in which states would receive funds that they would then allocate to housing authorities or other local providers.
