Wasn't sure of the process of getting some gov't housing. Section 8? Does anyone know?

Call your local office. The wait list if 2-4 yrs and some places no longer accept applications cause the wait list is so long ... so, have a plan 'B'

Call them and fill out the paperwork. If you qualify, you will go on a waiting list.

I went on the waiting list when my son was a month old. I got lucky as they did a pull of extremely low income families and I started getting assistance when he was 6 months old. My friend went on the waiting list at the same time and she JUST got pulled a couple of months ago (it's been 3 years). It really depends on your area, what funding is available, how many people are on the list, and how severe your need is (according to their paperwork).....
