According to the Omaha Housing Authority (OHA), their district encompasses the cities of Omaha, Ralston, Papillion, LaVista, Millard County and the county of Douglas. Applicants may reside in any Omaha rental in the aforementioned areas that meet the Housing Choice Voucher standard. If you are not familiar with Section 8 or how the program works we suggest you visit their website.
Affordable living in Omaha is abundant and OHA is committed to subsidizing leases for those who qualify for assistance. Before you can consider speaking to a leaser regarding Section 8, you must first go through the approval process with the housing authority. The sooner you apply the better; there could possibly be a waiting list.
The OHA strongly recommends that an approved lessee search for apartments outside economically distraught neighborhoods. Once approved with the housing authority, a lessee may relocate anywhere in America that offers a Housing Choice Voucher program.
