The Lowell Housing Section 8 Department serves approximately 1370 low and moderate income residents in Lowell who currently are under lease with privately owned apartments. With an increasing demand in the apartment rental market, our Section 8 Department is looking for more landlords to participate in the program. We are seeking available apartments for our program participants.

The benefits of being a Section 8 Landlord:

  • We send subsidy payments directly to you on the first of the month.
  • Affordable rent for your tenant because we pay approximately 70% of the total contract rent.
  • Our department has a knowledgeable and friendly staff, many with more than 10 years experience working with landlords and resolving tenant landlord disputes.
  • We will list your apartment on our Section 8 Listing Sheet.

To obtain more information about the Section 8 Program, please contact Tha Chhan, Division Director, Division of Leased Housing Program.
