Georgia Section 8 Waiting List

Georgia Section 8 waiting list contains the names of the applicants selected for the rental assistance program funded by HUD. The mere inclusion of a family in the waiting list of a county in Georgia does not guarantee it the issue of a Section 8 voucher. Long waiting lists are usual in most counties in GA as it is the case in most states of the US. As a result, people have to wait for quite a long time to get the actual help from the housing authorities they have applied. In this scenario, multiple applications can help you obtain a voucher fast.

The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (DCA) administers the tenant-based Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program in most counties of the state. Only ten out of 159 counties in Georgia are served by their individual housing authorities. If your area falls under the jurisdiction of DCA then you can use its vast resources available online to check your waiting list status as well as to know about open Section 8 waiting list in Georgia. On the other hand, if you live outside its jurisdiction, find out the name and contact details of the housing authority that serves your area first and then look for information pertaining to its Section 8 waiting list.

Section 8 Waiting List in Georgia

Due to limited resources available at DCA and most housing authorities in Georgia you will find it difficult to see a county waiting list open for fresh applications. Moreover, not many counties accept applications from eligible families the year round. When the number of applicants exceeds the number that a housing authority can provide rental assistance with the available funds, it is forced to close its waiting list for the county. Even the number of Section 8 landlords is found to be inadequate in comparison to the number of people already issued a voucher under the rental assistance program in Georgia.

You must visit frequently to the website of DCA and other housing authorities to check if a waiting list opening is announced in a county. Generally, the beginning of a year is the usual time when most counties open its Section 8 waiting list for new applications. Your swiftness in applying when a Section 8 waiting list opens in Georgia may place you at a good position for receiving the benefits of housing choice voucher program. Use the resources provided here to keep in touch with DCA and other housing authorities in Georgia.
