Section 8 is defined as a type of federal assistance. It is provided by the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (abbreviated as HUD). It sponsors subsidised housing for families and individuals that have a low income. The official name of the program is Housing Choice Voucher Program. Section 8 refers to a portion of the United States Housing Act. One can apply for Section 8 in Miami-Dade County in the state of Florida in the United States of America.

The two main Section 8 housing programs in operation currently are tenant-based vouchers and project-based vouchers. Families are eligible only if they have vouchers or certificates. They can find and lease a unit in the private sector and pay a portion of the rent based on their income (which is generally around thirty per cent). The local housing authority pays the owner the remaining rent subject to the fair market rent (abbreviated as FMR).

First of all, you would first call the housing authority office to make sure they are taking new clients meaning that they are allowing you to place your name on the waiting list. Believe me, I'm sure there is a wait list so get on it as soon as you can.
