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.

Selection Status

As of June 30, 2023, KCHA has selected the first 1,150 applicants from the 2020 lottery waiting list. We anticipate pulling waitlist applicants as follows for 2023: 

  • 1151 to 1151–July 2023
  • 1176 to 1235–August 2023
  • 1236 to 1300–September 2023
  • 1301 to 1370–October 2023
  • 1371 to 1440–November 2023
  • 1441 to 1500–December 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.

Search by Confirmation Number

Search by Birthdate & SSN

Reporting Application Changes

If the contact information listed on your Section 8 voucher application changes, you must report the changes to KCHA as soon as possible. You do not need to report other application changes (such as income), as these will be reviewed when your number reaches the top of the waiting list.
