2014 Housing Choice Voucher Waiting List Opening

Applicant Information

Housing Choice Voucher Applications are not being taken at this time. The Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) waiting list is currently closed.  However, HACA plans to accept pre-applications for the waiting list online from October 22 - 29, 2014.

During this 8-day timeframe, pre-applications must be submitted through an online application process.  Assistance for persons with disabilities and other special needs will be available.  This process eliminates the requirement to stand in line for a paper pre-application since pre-applications will not be accepted at the HACA main office. After October 29th, the pre-application process will close. All complete and unduplicated pre-applications received online will be entered into an online random lottery to select 2,500 pre-applications that will ultimately be placed on the waiting list and the order of placement.  Please visit this website and our Facebook page for more details coming in the next few months.
