Housing Choice Voucher Waiting List

PLEASE NOTE: The Housing Choice Voucher waiting list will not be opening in October 2023.  Please check back in November to view the status of the waiting list.  The waiting list will only open on the second Tuesday of each month for a 24 hour time period to accept applications.

Housing Choice Voucher waiting list applications are accepted for 24 hours on the second Tuesday of each month from 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. Each month, all applications received are placed in a random lottery selection for placement on a waiting list.  

Applications will be accepted only between 12 a.m. to 11:59 p.m. CST. on the date listed above. 

*Applications mailed via USPS must be received on the date of the waiting list opening. Applications that are faxed, emailed, or dropped off at the office must be received by 4:30 p.m. CST.


All applications received will be entered into a lottery drawing for placement on the waiting list. Those selected will receive a letter informing them they have been chosen. Applicants not selected for the waiting list in the lottery are deleted and must reapply with each open waiting list to be eligible for the next lottery drawing.
