Section 8 Waiting List & Lottery
KCHA's Section 8 voucher program will accept applications from 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Apr. 5, 2017 through 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Apr. 18, 2017. The free application process will only be available online through the KCHA website. A random lottery drawing will be used to select 3,500 of these applications for the Section 8 waiting list. Any agency requesting a fee to assist you or who guarantees placement on the waiting list is fraudulent. Please report any such agency to KCHA.
All 2,500 households selected from the last lottery held in March 2015 have been contacted. KCHA will accept new applications from 8 a.m. on Wednesday, Apr. 5 through 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Apr. 18. The link to the application will appear on this website at that time.
You must submit the application online, and you must submit it no later than the deadline of 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Apr. 18, 2017.
