What happens when my name comes to the top of the waiting list?
When your name comes to the top of the list you will be contacted by someone from the Housing Authority who has chosen you from the Wait List. Each Housing Authority has it's own process but you will be required to complete an intake application, be able to provide verification of Social Security numbers, statuses as a Citizen of the United States or legal residency and date of birth. You will also be asked to submit income, asset, and various other verifications as required for each member in your family. PHA will also do several required checks for criminal background, sex offender status and whether you owe any money to any other Housing Authority. Your eligibility for a Voucher will be decided during this process.
If you are determined to be eligible at that time you will attend a briefing where you will be told all the details about the voucher program and be issued your Housing Choice Voucher.
