About Jefferson County Section 8 and T.B.R.A.

The Housing Authority of Clallam County is currently (effective 11/1/09)  the HA agency for Jefferson County Section 8 and Tenant Based Rental Assistance programs.

The Housing Authority of Jefferson County was established in 1970 to offer safe, decent, affordable housing to low-income residents of Jefferson County. One hundred and fifteen households benefit from the Housing Choice Voucher Program though the HAJC. Families that qualify for vouchers pay approximately one-third of their monthly income for rent to a private landlord, and the remainder is paid by the Housing Authority. This helps to ensure a decent quality of life for low-income families, because if rent takes up more than a third of the household income, it’s impossible to pay for other basics, such as food and utilities.
