A recent study analyzed the demographic characteristics and labor force attachment of households receiving assistance under the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program. This highlights the need for state-funded housing assistance. Major findings include:
- Elderly or disabled households make up nearly half (49 percent) of all voucher households, a significant increase over the past decade.
- Three-fourths of the voucher households that are not elderly or disabled either work or participate in other programs that have work requirements.
