Section 8 eligibility is based on income, criminal history, and citizenship status at the time you come to the top of the waiting list.
Everyone is encouraged to apply. HACSA does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, religion, national origin, age, sexual orientation, color, family status, mental or physical disability.
The first step is to submit an application when the waiting list is open. Check this website periodically to learn the status of the Section 8 waiting list. A lottery system will randomly select a number of the applications received online to make up the waiting list. If your application is selected for the waiting list, you will be notified by letter and informed of your assigned position on the list.
The letter you receive once you reach the top of the waiting list will schedule you to attend a Section 8 orientation, the first of three meetings the adults in your household are required to attend to complete the initial intake process. This first large group meeting will review program eligibility requirements and initial paperwork is completed.
