Recently, you or someone you know may have lost their job and now is in danger of losing their housing and you've heard about Section 8 Public Housing Assistance through HUD but you don't know what does HUD stand for, what is Section 8 Housing. What's this all about? How do you go about getting it? Hello, I'm Robert Todd and I'm here to answer the question, "How to apply for Section 8 Assistance through HUD?" Well first of all, HUD stands for the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development and they are charged with the responsibility among other things, of providing public housing assistance. One of the programs through which they provide public housing assistance is Section 8. One of the easiest ways is to go on the Internet to the HUD website and download information regarding Section 8 Public Housing Assistance. You can even download an application. If you don't have access to the Internet, you can go to the yellow pages and get a telephone number of the office nearest you for HUD and have them send you an application. I'm Robert Todd and thank you for watching.
