The federal government, in its widest such distribution in two decades, on Friday announced it was creating 19,359 new housing vouchers and providing them to more than 1,945 public housing agencies.Ten of those housing vouchers are going to Racine County.Housing vouchers (Section 8) can be applied for and given to those whose family income does not exceed 50% of the county's or metropolitan area's median income. Recipients of the voucher can then receive federal subsidies to help pay for rent every month, but must still find their own housing within certain parameters.
