Section 8 Housing provides subsidized rent to qualifying families. Families contribute between 30% and 39% of their income toward rent. Penquis, acting as an agent for MaineHousing, subsidizes the balance. Housing must meet Housing and Urban Development quality standards and Fair Market Rent guidelines. Income eligible families and individuals living in Penobscot, Piscataquis, Knox and Waldo Counties may apply for this program.  Preference is given to individuals and families who are homeless, as well as to those that are disabled, 62 years of age or older and to families of two or more.
