Section 8 Rental Assistance
Section 8 is a federally funded rental assistance program that subsidizes the cost of rental housing for eligible households. Low-income families and individuals rent privately owned housing, and the Housing Authority servicing that area pays the owner directly for a portion of their monthly rent. Lynwood residents interested in this program would need to contact the Housing Authority of the County of Los Angeles during normal business hours at (626) 262-4510 or by visiting https://www.hacola.org/.
