The Bowling Green Housing Agency is an appointed citizen committee which sets policy for the City's administration of the Section 8 Voucher program of the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). On a quarterly basis, it reviews the functioning of the program and makes any changes it deems necessary. The program may serve as many as 120 low-income, very low-income, and extremely low-income families in Bowling Green. Its goal is to help such families secure safe, decent and sanitary housing. Day-to-day administration is in the hands of the Consortium of Northwest Ohio, of which Bowling Green is a member along with the Henry and Williams Metropolitan Housing Authorities.
