Housing Choice Voucher Waiting List

PLEASE NOTE: The Housing Choice Voucher waiting list is currently closed.  We anticipate re-opening the waiting list later this Summer.  Please check back on Tuesday, July 12, 2022, for an update on the status of accepting applications. 

Each month, all pre-applications received on the second Tuesday are placed in a random lottery selection for placement on a waiting list. The City maintains a Housing Choice Voucher waiting list that is roughly the number of vouchers expected to be available during the next three months. If your pre-application is selected you will be notified via letter. The pre-applications not selected for the waiting list in the lottery are deleted and applicants must reapply with each open waiting list to be eligible.
