Can My Daughter Apply For Section 8 Housing Assistance?

Social Security has found in my daughter's favor, and made her eligible for an SSI payment per month, and also awarded her a back payment of over $19,000 min. to $ 45,000 max. They seem to be confused as to the final amount at this time ! But that isn't our question. Which is : if she puts that money into a savings and checking account, will she still be able to apply for Section 8 Low Cost Housing help ? Thank you for your time.


I'm sorry, but Social Security is my only area of expertise, so I am unable to answer your question.

Best, Jerry
