Do you need to check your credit score, background check and criminal records?

The Department of Housing and Urban Development does not check your credit when you apply for Section 8 rental assistance or other public benefits, however the property owner might do so as part of your background check. The HUD guidelines say, “the owners may reject an applicant for a poor credit history.” If you are worried about your credit, check your credit score before hand.

Everyone is eligible for a free credit report once a year, some credit card companies allow you to see this information directly on their online platforms once you log into your bank account. The agencies that providing these scores are Equifax, Experian, and TransUnion. You should never pay for your credit report.


Will the PHA reject me if I have a criminal record?

It depends. PHAs do a criminal background check on each adult applicant for public housing or vouchers. You WILL be rejected if…

• You must register as a lifetime sex offender in any state;

• You have ever been convicted of manufacturing methamphetamine in federally assisted housing; or

• You have been evicted from federally assisted housing for drug-related criminal activity within the past 3 or 5 years UNLESS you have completed a drug treatment program approved by the PHA. The ban is 3 years for BHA and HACA vouchers. It is 5 years for OHA vouchers and for BHA, HACA, and OHA public housing. You MIGHT be rejected if the background check reveals…

• Drug-related crimes;

• Violent crimes; or

• Other crimes that could threaten the health, safety, or right to peaceful enjoyment of the building by other residents or PHA employees. The PHA will look at arrests and convictions that occurred within the past 5 years.

Am I eligible?

Eligibility for a housing voucher is determined by the PHA based on the total annual gross income and family size and is limited to US citizens and specified categories of non-citizens who have eligible immigration status. In general, the family’s income may not exceed 50% of the median income for the county or metropolitan area in which the family chooses to live. By law, a PHA must provide 75 percent of its voucher to applicants whose incomes do not exceed 30 percent of the area median income. Median income levels are published by HUD and vary by location. The PHA serving your community can provide you with the income limits for your area and family size.

During the application process, the PHA will collect information on family income, assets, and family composition. The PHA will verify this information with other local agencies, your employer and bank, and will use the information to determine program eligibility and the amount of the housing assistance payment

If the PHA determines that your family is eligible, the PHA will put your name on a waiting list, unless it is able to assist you immediately. Once your name is reached on the waiting list, the PHA will contact you and issue to you a housing voucher.
