The number of landlords seeking Section 8 tenants has risen by 18 percent this year, according to Boca Raton-based, a rental listing service for Section 8 participants. The website’s Housing Voucher Participation Index tracks the number of new landlords registering properties for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development’s rental voucher program across 10 major affordable housing markets, including Broward County. This year, the largest increase in participating landlords was in California markets, like Oakland and San Diego. [Business Wire]
