*** A link to the pre-application will be posted here during the above dates/times. ***

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.

Beginning February 1st, 2016 we will only accept pre-applications online for any Housing Programs that are currently open. Pre-applications will no longer be accepted in our office unless you need a Reasonable Accommodation. Online pre-applications can be filled out from any computer or smart-phone with internet access. This change allows for the pre-applications to be entered sooner and more accurately to better serve the community.
