Stephanie asked 8 months ago

My husband and I have one child.  We applied for section 8 and finally got our number chosen.  We did have some criminal activities on our records in 2010 and prior but no felonies.  However in 2013 we were denied housing because of our records.  It has now been 8 years and we have has no police contact and cleaned up our act.  Will we get denied again or do we have a chance this time???

You should definitely reapply now. if you meet income eligibility requirements along with other criteria, you past criminal record should not cause you any problems at this time.
