Section 8 Waiting List & Lottery

KCHA's Section 8 waiting list is closed. We chose 3,500 applicants for the current list by a random lottery drawing in May 2017. We notified these applicants via printed letters and emails sent in the last week of May 2017. We do not know when the waiting list will re-open in the future.

You can look up your lottery number to find out if you're on the waiting list. There are two ways to do this. In the boxes below, you can enter the confirmation number you received after submitting your application, or enter your head of household's birth date and the last 4 digits of their social security number.

The date and numbers must exactly match what you put on your application. If you applied but cannot find your number using this tool, contact the Section 8 office.

Search by Birthdate & SSN
