Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee
Rent Assistance (Section 8) Program
5011 W. Lisbon Avenue
Milwaukee, WI 53210

This Section 8 Program is a federally funded program administered by the Housing Authority of the City of Milwaukee.  The Section 8 Program, often referred to as the Rent Assistance Program (RAP), is designed to help low and moderate income families rent privately-owned housing.  The rental subsidy known as a housing assistance payment is paid directly to the property owner or designated payee each month.  This program is available to a limited number of families and allows them to pay approximately 30% to 40% of their income towards their monthly rent.  The program pays the balance of the rent directly to the landlord in the form of a monthly check.
