Waiting Lists and Eligibility

When a family wishes to receive assistance, the family must submit an application when the waiting list is open. Generally, when a voucher becomes available, the next family at the top of the waiting list is contacted and screened for eligibility. The HCV waiting list is not first-come, first-served. The list is ordered and ranked by local preference points which the family must verify. The NHA has established the preference point system to quickly serve within our jurisdiction the most vulnerable populations.

Applicant families must meet the following requirements:

  • Meet HUD’s definition of family
  • Meet income limits specified by HUD
  • Qualify on the basis of citizenship or the eligible immigrant status
  • Provide social security number information
  • Sign required consent forms
  • Pass screening process

In some cases, an applicant family may meet certain NHA’s preference (see HCV’s Administrative Plan) or HUD’s targeted funding criteria (FYI).
