Section 8 Portability refers to the option whereby a Section 8 participant who receives rental subsidy from one housing authority is allowed to move to the jurisdiction of another housing authority and still retain their voucher. A participant in good standing can transfer their Section 8 assistance to anywhere in the United States where there is an Agency administering the Section 8 program. Section 8 families who are currently residing in Fairfield County can request a portability transfer at any time, assuming the proper notification of the intent to vacate was given to the current landlord. A new voucher recipient who was not a Fairfield County resident at the time they were placed on the Waiting List must live in Fairfield County for at least one year before they can exercise the portability option.
