Section 8 to Homeownership

Many very-low income households use a Section 8 voucher to obtain affordable rental housing. What you may not know is that those vouchers can be used for a mortgage payment as well.

Through the Johnson City Housing Authority, the Kingsport Housing and Redevelopment Authority or the Bristol Tennessee Housing and  Redevelopment Authority, Eastern Eight helps you buy a home suing your Section 8 voucher.
