    It depends on the state where you live.

  2. Landlord says:

    It does NOT matter what state. Section 8 is federally funded. Anyone convicted of a felony is not eligible for public housing assistance.

  3. acermill says:

    No. Sec. 8 expressly forbids any use of such housing by a convicted felon. A Sec. 8 tenant is not even allowed to have such felon VISIT in the premises.

    It can vary with the local program. I don’t believe any criminal background whatsoever is automatically denied, but it does significantly harm your chances. And if violence was involved, it’s almost guaranteed ineligibility.
