Many landlords participating in Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) will check your credit score prior to leasing to you. If discrepancies are found, your tenancy may be rejected.
Knowing your credit score beforehand, regardless of whether it is good or bad, can prevent untimely hang-ups with landlords and Section 8 administrators.
Therefore we highly recommend you get your most recent credit score before applying for Section 8 housing.
