Section 8 Waiting List

By Stephanie Stang | 

Hundreds of Bowling Green residents are on a waiting list hoping to get help to pay for rent. Bowling Green's Section 8 housing program has an outstanding waiting list and is no longer even taking applications.

Section 8 is a federally funded rental assistance program that helps those with low incomes. The Bowling Green Housing and Community Development Center has 509 housing vouchers that means they can only help that many people each year with their rent.
