Rental Assistance

Section 8 Program

The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Rental Assistance Program was transferred to Citrus County Housing Services on October 1, 2011. The transfer was a result of diminishing funding allocations and a planned reorganization of the Sumter County Housing Services. All administrative responsibilities of the program are under the direct control and supervision of Citrus County Housing Services.

Additional Details

  • Existing voucher holders may continue to live in Sumter County for the duration of their voucher. They may move to Citrus County if they so choose as long as they are in compliance and all required notices are provided to the landlords and the housing authority.
  • Landlords continue to receive housing assistance payments as before, though Citrus County Housing Services generates the payments.
  • Citrus County staff performs all housing inspections, conducts annual re-certifications  and is available by appointment in Sumter County.
