Section 8 Waiting List

Attention Section 8 applicants, voucher holders, participants and Landlords:

We need your help. With the section 8 waiting list being open indefinitely, as you can imagine the volume of work the section 8 department is handling is at times overwhelming. To be able to process applications and move-ins as quickly as possible we are implementing new procedures on how phone calls and walks in will be handled.

We would like to ask that you please call and make an appointment before coming into the office if you know that you need to see a specific person about a specific issue. If you are picking up an application or dropping off information please feel free to do that at any time during our normal lobby hours. If you are bringing information that has been requested, please read your letter carefully and double check everything to make sure you bring all of the needed documentation at one time.

If you call the office, you may not be able to reach someone right away The employees either have appointments in their office, or they are working on a file and the staff has been instructed to return these calls later as to not hold up the process. Please leave a message, and we ask that you only leave one detailed message, don’t call back repeatedly. Please make sure that when you leave that message that you leave a good number to call you back. Many times we try to return calls and there is no answer and no voice mail set up. The staff have designated times that they return phone calls. Please allow up to 48 hours to have your call returned.

If you are calling about the status of your application, we will not return your call. There just isn’t enough hours in the day to process applications and return phones calls regarding your status. Any communication in regards to your application will be handled through the mail. We do not give out your place on the waiting list, as this number can change daily because of preferences. Currently it’s taking us approximately two months to even pick up an application that has been turned in. For example, it’s January and we are currently working on applications that were submitted in November. This time line can fluctuate with demand.

Please, please, please if you bring an application into the office, make sure you sign in and document that you are turning an application in. You will be given a stamped copy of your application, please hold on to that, it is your proof that you did turn in an application. If you fax us an application, please keep the fax transmission page documenting that the fax went through. If you email us a copy of application, please keep your copy of where it is emailed. You may mail your application in, but it is the least recommended option, because you will have no verification that we received it.

Thank you so much for your help and understanding. It is our goal to process your application and have you housed as quickly as possible and implementing the above steps will help!

Thanks!!

Angela Strickland
Executive Director
