Waiting List information last updated on 4/11/2016
For the 3,000 applicants who were selected in the 2015 Section 8 Waiting list lottery, we have contacted persons through lottery number 1600. The waiting list is not expected to reopen until late 2016; check this web page for updates.
For applicants on any waiting list, you MUST maintain a current mailing address at all times as you will be contacted through the U.S. Mail when your name comes to the top of the waiting list. If your mail comes back as undeliverable or if there is no response because you moved and mail was not forwarded, your file will be canceled and you will need to reapply when the waiting list reopens. Address changes should be made by calling 541-682-3755 or by email. For questions regarding Section 8 housing not answered on our website, please call the Eugene office at 541-682-3755. For more general information about Section 8, please see the Section 8 pages.
We are closing the above lists because waiting times are excessively long. We will continue to process existing applications and will re-open the lists when waiting become short again.

A note about fully accessible wheelchair units: Because we have a limited number of wheelchair accessible units, the wait can be quite long. Wheelchair accessible units are offered first to current residents who need them. Therefore, some applicants who need the features decide to accept a non-accessible unit and wait for an accessible unit to become available.
