Section 8(the HUD rental assistance program)is run individually through each community. Look in the government pages of your phone book. It will be in the county/city housing or community development department. They will be glad to give the detail for your area.
Your neighbor can probably give you this info as well as tell you the pluses/minuses of his experience. Just ask. You may want to do a search at CREOnline for the term Section 8 and you should get some hits. It seems like landlords like it or hate it-no grey area.
