Sioux Empire Housing Lists
These lists were created in partnership with the Sioux Falls HUD Field Office and Minnehaha County.
The units are intended for low and moderate income tenants. The tenants must have incomes within certain ranges to be eligible. These properties do not have rent assistance. This means the tenant will pay full listed rent. However, rent for these units are usually lower than other properties. Most of them accept Section 8 housing vouchers.
Types of Subsidized Housing Programs
- Public Housing: The low-rent housing units under this program are owned and managed by a local Public Housing Agency (PHA). The family must apply at the PHA office. The program is available to families, elderly and qualified singles whose income is below certain limits.
- Housing Choice Vouchers: Many PHAs provide Housing Choice Vouchers (HCV) which are often time referred to as Section 8. You must apply at the PHA office. When qualified, you will be issued a voucher. It will be your responsibility to find a suitable rental unit that meets your needs. The PHA will inspect the unit that you select to ensure it meets HUD’s housing quality standards. When the PHA accepts the unit, you will pay your share of the rent directly to the landlord. The PHA will pay the landlord the difference between what you pay and what the rental unit normally costs.
- Project Based Assistance: This type of rental assistance is tied to the project. A family must apply directly at the project that has assistance. The owner or manager will determine if the family qualifies, based on their income, and how much the family must pay. The owner has a contract with HUD which will pay the owner the amount of rent over the family’s portion.
