Not sure if the sectioon 8 housing will allow him to live in it.
I'd for sure check that out.
I believe it wont fly but that is also for CA.

I don't live in section 8 but I live in rural housing which pretty much has same rules and convicted felons can not live here. I think if it has been over 10 years there are exceptions. But from what I know of the rules section 8 is federal as is rural housing, so state rules don't really apply.

Hello & welcome to PTO The PO will know if Section 8 allows felons or not and will not approve the housing if felons are not allowed and/or if it depends on the offenders charges. I'm sure the local PO's have all been through this before & are well aware of Section 8 rules. Also, read your lease.

Good luck!!

EDIT: From Pennsylvania Section 8:

To qualify for low income housing the applicant and all adult members of the household must submit to a background check. Criminal activities, convictions, felonies or misdemeanors are cause for the denial of benefits.
Other reasons for rejection of the application can include a negative background check, including the discovery of criminal behavior by someone living in the household...
