"Home is where our story begins" - "It's all about people"

The Weatherford Housing Authority's goal is to provide families with prompt, courteous and professional service with the Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments Program. The WHA will make every effort to inform you of the program rules, and to advise you of how these rules affect you. Since Federal regulations are not always easy to understand, it is very important to ask questions if you are not sure of something.

Do not hesitate to contact a WHA representative at 817.596.0300 if you have a question or problem that pertains to the Section 8 Housing Voucher program.

The Section 8 Housing Assistance Payments Program is a federal program that provides Tenants with rental assistance, directly payable to the Landlord.

The program is aimed at families who are currently paying more than 30% of their adjusted monthly income for rent and utilities and for those who need rental assistance in order to live in "safe, sanitary and decent" housing.

The staff at WHA is glad to have the opportunity to assist you with your housing needs.
