The program, formerly known as "Section 8", is a federally funded program that assists eligible participants with their rent. Eligibility is determined by several factors but include individuals and families with extremely and very low income.
New participants in the program are selected from the waiting list based on their eligibility and when they applied. The waiting list for the Housing Choice Voucher Program must be open before new applications can be accepted. At this time the waiting list is CLOSED.
When your name comes to the top of the list we will notify you by mail.
