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.

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

KCHA is now serving lottery number 1 from the lottery held in March 2020. Refer to the list below to find out when your number might reach the top of this list. These dates are estimates and may change.

  • 1 to 5 — Sept. 2020
  • 6 to 15 — Oct. 2020
  • 16 to 25 — Nov. 2020
  • 26 to 35 — Dec. 2020

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.
