Section 8 Rentals

Knoxville Section 8 vouchers are accepted on many Tenant’s Choice® rental properties. Tenant’s Choice® has a large selection of Section 8 rental homes including single-family homes, duplexes, apartments, condos and townhouses which qualify under the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) and Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation (KCDC) voucher program. The company is proud of their affiliation with THDA, local Public Housing Agencies (PHA) and HUD in their continuing efforts to assist low income families, disabled persons and seniors in finding clean, safe, affordable housing in the Knoxville, Tennessee area.

The housing voucher program allows you to find your own private housing in the Knoxville area. The THDA or KCDC through HUD funding pays your housing subsidy directly to the landlord, and you pay the difference. Once the THDA or KCDC approves your property inspection, you can enter into a lease with the landlord. The Tenant’s Choice® staff is familiar with the Section 8 voucher program and is able to help make your move a smooth and streamlined process.

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 Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation (KCDC) and/or, Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) to insure all their properties meet the health and safety standards determined by the THDA/KCDC. Once the THDA/KCDC 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.
