Section 8 is a program started by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
The residents of Encino Properties in Albuquerque, NM are among the recipients of these Section 8 vouchers, and they describe the day-to-day struggles of life below the poverty line. With the elderly population expected to double by 2030, and funding for HUD subsidized housing unable to currently meet that demand for low-income senior housing, the residents of Encino Properties ponder what their situation would be like without HUD assistance. The inability to meet the demand for subsidized housing will be an immediate concern for the impending Baby Boomer retirees that are about to flood the low-income housing market.
