It would really help to know which part of the state you want to be in.

This link allows you to search for Section 8 apartments by city or county:

http://www.hud.gov/apps/section8/ste...TN%2CTennessee

There are a lot listed in Hamilton County near Chattanooga. There are some listed in Fayette County near Memphis. Just depends where you want to be.

Hello Wmsn4life, thank you for your reply. I'm not real sure exactly where I want to be. we have checked into hixson but it only showed me 3 apartments that looked old and run down.
I just want to find a complex that is nice, clean and safe. my dad does not want to be near a
big city. we do know that we want to be in a small town with friendly folks. I also checked
blaine tennessee but my father doesn't want to be that far east... any ideas or suggestions?

Camden and Columbia are nice small towns. Camden is between Memphis and Nashville off I-40 while Columbia is south of Nashville.

Both show that they have Section 8 housing available.

Where are you moving from?

Not sure what you mean by Lower Tennessee. There are tons of apartments in Memphis that advertise in the Sunday paper as Section 8 friendly. Usually not in the best neighborhoods though. Every now and then you'll see a house listed as section 8 ok in the Colonial Acres part of East Memphis, which isn't bad. Good luck!

If you're looking in Hixson, then look at Vista Ridge Apts in Soddy Daisy. Just a bit up the road from Hixson (about 10 mins) and the apartments are only about 5 years old.
