Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Centralized Waiting List
The Section 8 housing choice voucher program is the federal government’s major program for assisting very low-income families, the elderly, and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market.
The Massachusetts Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program Centralized Waiting List opened on January 6, 2003 in accordance with provisions contained in the United States Housing Act of 1937, as amended. Ninety-Eight (98) Massachusetts housing authorities utilize this one computerized list; all applicant information entered onto this list can be accessed and updated by any and all participating housing authorities. Waiting list information is secure and accessed only by authorized housing authority staff with special login codes.
The Waiting List is updated at least every two (2) years. For more info, go to Waiting List Update.
Participating Housing Authorities are accepting applications for the Centralized Waiting List at each location. Applicants need apply to only one of the participating housing authorities. (Click here to see how to apply for preliminary application.)
The housing authorities have not been issued any additional Section 8 Housing Choice Vouchers; vouchers will be issued based on turnover. For more information on the housing choice voucher program, visit the U.S. Department of HUD’s web site.
