HRA Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list


Waiting list status: Closed

The Section 8 waiting lists that had been open from November 5 - November 9, 2018 are currently closed.

We are in the process of conducting a random lottery of the 5,626 applicants to determine placement on the waiting list. There are 1500 openings for the Housing Choice Voucher waiting list and 700 openings for the 3 Bedroom Project Based Voucher waiting list. The lottery should be completed by January 2019.

You can check your status on the lists by going to Prior to the completion of the lottery, if your status says, "Submitted", that means your application was successfully submitted and it will be included in the lottery. If your current status says, “no records”, that means your application was not submitted successfully and it will not be included in the lottery. Once the lottery has been completed, if it shows your status as “Active” then you made it through the lottery and are on the list. If it shows your status as “Inactive”, you are not on the waiting list.
