Section 8 Waiting List & Lottery
KCHA's Section 8 waiting list is closed. We chose 2,500 applicants for the current list by a random lottery drawing in March 2020. We notified these applicants via printed letters and emails sent in the last week of March 2020. We do not know when the waiting list will re-open in the future.
As of Sept. 30, 2022, KCHA has selected the first 1,150 applicants from the 2020 lottery waiting list. We do not expect to select any additional applications until some time in 2023.
Lottery Number Search
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.
