Great News: Jefferson County Housing Authority Section 8 waiting List is Opening for two days!
* Please read all the information below carefully. The waiting list is only opening for two days. Usually, it is only open two days for the whole year. In this time, there will likely be thousands of people submitting their name. The housing authority will then randomly pull people’s names off the waiting list (like a Lottery) and those people will be offered a Section 8 Voucher. Also, you need to re-submit your name every year – and notify the housing authority if your mailing address changes so they are able to contact you.
If you need affordable housing, this is an excellent opportunity, however, be aware that there are thousands of people who need this, while only a few vouchers are available.
“The Jefferson County Housing Authority will be handing out random choice lottery tickets in order to be considered for possible placement on Jefferson County Housing Authority’s (JCHA’s) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program.
