Tenant's Choice® features a variety of properties on their comprehensive rental database that accept Section 8 vouchers making it easier for low-income families, disabled persons and seniors to locate good quality housing in the area. They work with the local Knoxville PHA and/or, Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) to insure all their properties meet the health and safety standards determined by the THDA/PHA. Once the THDA/PHA completes the inspection of the property, you and the landlord may enter into the lease and begin your moving arrangements.
THDA is responsible for overseeing the Housing Choice Voucher program in 75 Tennessee counties. The remaining counties are administered locally by PHA’s who receive federal funding directly from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Your housing subsidy is paid by the THDA or PHA directly to the landlord and you are responsible for the difference. Many of the properties are pet friendly and accept one dog or cat or two dogs or two cats. Tenant’s Choice® helps more Section 8 families, seniors and disabled persons find suitable Knoxville, TN housing than anyone else.
KCDC also offers a first-time buyer program for any section 8 voucher holders. Please call Jennifer at 865-403-1228 for more information.
