If you applied for the Section 8 waiting list recently, it will take 5-7 business days for us to receive the pre-applications, import them into our system, and run the lottery. After that, you may call 719-387-6700 and press 1 to hear your rank on the waiting list. When/if your name comes to the top of the waiting list, we will contact you via mail how to proceed.
The Section 8 waiting list accepts lottery online pre-applications once per year (in 2019 it was July 1st and July 2nd). Please see the Announcement and FAQ's below for information on the annual opening. Please read the FAQ's carefully, as names are removed from the waiting list annually and you must re-apply.

This change allows for the pre-applications to be entered sooner and more accurately to better serve the community.
