Facing the expiration of your housing voucher without securing a rental? Here's how to navigate the situation.

Updated over a week ago

If you have a housing voucher that is about to expire and you haven't been able to find a rental property that accepts it, there are a few steps you can take.

  1. Search on Many property owners who list on are eager to rent to voucher holders. Look for the icon of a house with an 8 inside. That indicates the property owner has experience with the Section 8 program.

  2. Ask for an extension: Reach out to the housing agency as soon as possible to discuss your situation. They may be able to provide guidance, extend the expiration date, or offer alternative solutions to help you secure housing.

  3. Explore Housing Resources: Research other housing resources in your area that may have available units or assistance programs specifically designed for individuals with expiring vouchers. Local housing agencies, non-profit organizations, or community services might offer support in finding suitable housing options or provide temporary housing solutions.
