About The Housing Program

The Housing Program of Jefferson Parish administers all aspects of the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program under the direction of the Housing Authority of Jefferson Parish.  The Housing Program of Jefferson Parish covers all areas of Jefferson Parish except Kenner, which is administered by the Kenner Housing Authority.

Jefferson Parish Section 8 Housing Program was damaged by Hurricane Katrina, but has come back stronger than ever.

The best and fastest way to reach us is through the internet. This internet site is our connection to you- make full use of it!

Jefferson Parish is currently not taking applications for persons wishing to apply for Section 8 at the first time.

In addition to administering the Housing Choice Voucher program, we are also administering the Disaster Voucher Program (DVP) and Disaster Housing Assistance Program (DHAP) to address the needs of families affected by Hurricanes Ike. Please see the pages devoted to that program for more information.
