Frequently Asked Questions
How do I apply?
Applications are available by calling 207-773-4753, mailing a request to PHA at 14 Baxter Blvd. Portland, ME 04101 or by coming to our office.
How do I know if I’m eligible?
Like the Housing Choice Voucher program applicants must not make more than a certain amount of income, must be citizens or legal residents of the U.S. and must pass a background check. To actually move-in to a mod rehab unit the owner has to select you from the waiting list.
Can I get help right away?
Like all Section 8 programs PHA has long waiting lists. This is not emergency housing. It is important that you notify PHA of any change in where you live or where you get your mail so PHA and the owner can contact you when you are next on the list.
If I want to move can I take my help with me?
The rental assistance you get in a Mod Rehab unit stays with you only as long as you are in the unit and have not violated any tenant obligations under the Lease or with the Statement of Family Responsibility.
