Public Notice Update – Department of Housing Rent Subsidy Waiting Lists Open. Mail-in Application or Apply Online by August 18th

The State of Connecticut Department of Housing (DOH), with contractor J . D’Amelia & Associates, announces the opening of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program (HCV) and State Rental Assistance Program (RAP) waiting lists statewide on August 4, 2014.  Pre-applications will be accepted from single-member households, families, the elderly and people with disabilities.  Applicants must be 18 years of age or older to apply, or an emancipated minor.  The programs offer rent subsidies to eligible households.
Filling out the pre-application form will put a household in a lottery for possible inclusion on the waiting lists for both programs. The computer lottery system will be used to randomly select 5,000 pre-applications for the Section 8 HCV Program and 3,000 pre-applications for the RAP waiting lists from pre-applications received during the application period.
