How to Apply for Section 8 Housing in Monroe, Michigan

by Beth Winston ; Updated July 27, 2017

A Section 8 housing choice voucher helps low-income residents with the cost of rent in the private sector. Income limits are based on the number of people in the household and the median income for your county. In Monroe, Michigan, the median income in fiscal year 2010 was $69,000, according to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. For a family of four to be considered "very low income" and potentially qualify for Section 8 housing assistance, the household could earn no more than $34,500 annually.

Step 1

Contact the Lucas Metropolitan Housing Authority, which administers the program in Monroe County. Call or visit the agency's website.

Step 2

Ask if the housing choice voucher waiting list is open. The list is usually closed, but it is opened to new applicants at least one day each year.

Step 3

Ask to be put on an email contact list if the waiting list is closed when you call. That way, you should be notified the next time the housing authority intends to open the list.

Step 4

Request and complete a pre-application form if the list is open. This allows you to be placed on the waiting list.

Step 5

Schedule an appointment for a full application when your turn on the list comes up. Make the full application for a voucher at the housing authority offices at 211 S. Byrne Road in Toledo, Ohio. Be prepared to provide proof of your income and monthly expenses in order to be fully assessed for the program.


  • There are usually lengthy waiting lists for Section 8 vouchers. Even once you get onto the waiting list, you should expect to wait a period of years before having the chance to apply.
