HCV Waitlist Open December 1st

Tallahassee Housing Authority will begin accepting online pre-applications for the Housing Choice Voucher program from December 1 through December 31, 2020.

Persons interested in applying for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program must complete an on-line pre-application during the open waitlist period.  The on-line pre-application is available at  Printed pre-applications will not be available.  

The pre-application contains questions designed to obtain information about the names, social security numbers and birth dates of members of the household, household total income, and such basic contact information as a mailing address, phone number, and email address (if you have one).  Each household may apply only once.  Duplicate or incomplete pre-applications will not be accepted.  Pre-applications may be completed anywhere internet access is available.

Pre-applications may be submitted at any time that the wait list is open.  Applicants will receive a confirmation after successfully submitting their application.  Important note: You should write down the confirmation number, print the confirmation screen, or take a picture of the screen with your cell phone.  This confirmation number may be used to track your pre-application and check on your status after the wait list has closed.

Submission of a pre-application does not guarantee a family a spot on the wait list.  Families will be listed on the wait list in the order determined by their selection in a random lottery conducted by a third-party.  Only 5,000 applicants will be selected for the waitlist.  All other applications will be purged from the application site on February 1, 2021.
