The Poughkeepsie Housing Authority administers 87 Section 8 Vouchers . Eligible families are
issued a voucher and must locate a unit to rent. As long as certain criteria are met regarding the
unit, the family can rent the unit and the authority will provide rental assistance. The PHA"s
jurisdiction is the City of Poughkeepsie.
Leaving the Poughkeepsie Housing Authority with Section 8 assistance is called Portability. If
you are a current voucher holder, and interested in leaving the PHA’s jurisdiction, please contact
our office for more information.
HUD sets the income limits for applicants to Section 8. To be income eligible, a family must be
at least a very low-income family according to the income limits set by HUD.
