Section 8 is a housing voucher program that offers rental help for families with low-income.

The amount of this assistance is dependent on Texas evaluating several aspects determined for eligibility for Section 8 vouchers.  For instance, household size, family income, family assets, childcare expenses, medical payments as well as citizenship all are taken into consideration in determining if a family is eligible.
