HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER PROGRAM (SECTION 8)
which offers rental assistance for private market housing of your choice.

INCOME LIMITS

DHA’s affordable housing program admissions are based on an area median income (AMI), which is calculated according to your gross annual income (before taxes and benefits are deducted).

DHA follows state and federal income limits to determine eligibility. Here is a reference chart that has the most recent area median income (AMI) metrics for your reference.

If you cannot afford your current rent, Dallas County has some funds set aside to help its residents avoid eviction through rent/utilities payment support. DHA does not provide support for emergency rent/utilities payments.
