Waiting List Information

If your family's name is on the CMHA waiting list, we will begin to process your application when your name comes to the top of the list.


You cannot, however, sign up for the HCVP Program at CMHA unless you were a successful "winner" in the lottery. Due to funding limitations, the HCVP waiting list is presently closed to new applicants. When it reopens, announcements will appear in the newspaper along with directions on how to apply for the lottery.


You may apply for HCVP anywhere in the country where there is a housing authority with an open waiting list. Some housing authorities require you to live in their jurisdiction or area for the first year, and others allow you to use the Section 8 voucher anywhere you want right away. You must check the policy of the housing authority where you apply. A list of other housing authorities in the United States is on the HUD web page at www.hud.gov.
