  • Explanation of required bedroom sizes and other details
  • What’s expected at initial and annual inspections
  • Landlord and tenant responsibilities
  • How to track your account and payments online
  • Common pitfalls and how to avoid or overcome them

Get all the info straight from Section 8 officials who run the program.  The panel includes:

  • Arline Ramsey, Administrator for Integrity
  • Shannon Peterson, Administrator for Inspections
