1.  How Do I Apply for a Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8 Voucher)?


  • Applications for Vouchers are not being accepted at this time.  The Commission's waiting list for Vouchers has been closed since June 2012.  For those who are on the waiting list, the current projected waiting period for a Voucher is approximately 8-10 years.  We anticipate that wait may continue to grow unless the Commission receives funding for additional vouchers from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development.  Unfortunately, it does not appear that the waiting list will be opening for applications in the near future, based on recent funding decisions by the federal government.
