The Section 8 Rental Assistance Payments Program is a Federal program designed to provide rental assistance for low income families.

We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, or national origin.

This program is aimed at families who are currently paying more than 30% of their adjusted gross, monthly income for rent and utilities, and for those who need rental assistance in order to live in "safe, decent and sanitary" housing. Mountain Projects and the Federal Government have a special commitment to aid the homeless, low income, elderly, handicapped, disabled and large families.

MPI is assisting 684 families at this time which is an average of 1,640 persons, 43% of whom are elderly, handicapped or disabled. There are 338 single parent families, 14 of which are male head of household and 324 are female head of household. The total number of adult male head of household is 119 and the total number of adult female head of household is 612.  The total number of children is 750.  We are currently working with 340 landlords, with a total listing of 705 landlords who work with us at different points in time.
