The Bremerton Housing Authorityā€¯ (BHA) Housing Choice Voucher program assists over 2,000 families in the city of Bremerton, Kitsap and Mason County. To meet the demand for housing we need good landlords and invite your participation.

Participants of the Housing Choice Voucher/Section 8 program typically pay between 30% - 40% of their adjusted income for rent while the housing authority via federal dollars from the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) cover the difference between the approved contract rent and the tenant's rent payment. This guarantees that landlords will receive a portion of the rent on time each month.

By becoming our partner in the Housing Choice Voucher program you make it possible for low-income families to enjoy quality, affordable housing and in return owners enjoy:

Timely payments

Annual unit inspections

Fair market rental rates

Enforceable renter obligations defined in the lease tenancy addendum

Approved contract rents are set based on fair market rents, comparable rent for similar unassisted units and affordability for the individual client. View Current Fair Market Rents. The amounts reflected in the Fair Market Rents include an average utility costs to project affordability for families on the program.

As a property owner/manager you are encouraged to screen potential tenants for suitability, collect deposits in accordance with the lease, set rules and regulations that are in conformance with Washington State Tenant Law. The acceptance of the Section 8 program does not change your ability to management your own properties.

Ownership information is not required until a Housing Choice Voucher/Section 8 voucher holder attempts to rent your unit. You may advertise the listing by gosection8. We appreciate your consideration of the Section 8 program and look forward to partnering with you to provide affordable housing to families living in Bremerton, Kitsap County and Mason County.
