Has anyone successfully obtained Section 8 assistance?

This thread is to report something happy. Yesterday I got the amazing news that my name had come up on the Housing Voucher waiting list. For years I have been suffering paying 80% of my income for rent. If I get this it will make a tremendous difference in my life.

There is so little help for people like us but this is one thing that can be a life saver.

I am really excited but also nervous about the interview. Has anyone been through this? They ask for lots of information and I am frantically compiling everything(they only give you a week to respond).

So far I have qualified for all the other assistance that I have sought so I am a card carrying extremely low income person. Just nervous because the stakes are so high.

Does anyone have any advice?
