The Housing Authority of Salt Lake City’s Section 8 (also known as Housing Choice Voucher Program) provides rental assistance to low-income families in the private rental market. The amount of assistance is based upon Section 8 participants’ income.  HASLC is not a party to the lease, but does pay a portion of the rent directly to the landlord on behalf of the participant.
