Section 8 Waiting Lists

NOTICE: The Housing Choice Voucher Program (Section 8) Waiting List preliminary application period is currently closed.

Welcome to the Housing Choice Voucher (also known as Section 8) wait list information page. The Housing Choice Voucher Program provides rental subsidy to assist extremely low and low income individuals and families in renting safe, decent and affordable housing in the private rental market throughout Georgia's Department of Community Affairs (DCA)'s jurisdiction. The subsidy is given to eligible families who were selected from our wait list. Eligibility for the program is based on several factors including the family's income and eligible citizenship status.

Currently, DCA is not accepting applications to its preliminary wait list. The application process was last opened on February 1, 2016 and closed on February 7, 2016. Applications were taken for all 149 counties in Georgia that DCA has jurisdiction.

If you applied to the pre-application wait list during the open wait list period and received a confirmation number, you can check your status, beginning on Monday, March 7, 2016, to see if your confirmation number was chosen to be placed on the lottery wait list. You can check your status by visiting the website www.applygadca.com. You must have your confirmation number to determine your status. You may also call our customer service center 1-888-858-6085, and someone will verify your status for you.

DCA does not charge application fees. Please be aware of any website or company that states that it charges fees on behalf of DCA.

DCA administers the program in 149 of Georgia's 159 counties through five regional offices located around the State. The remaining 10 counties are served by their local housing authorities. View contact information for local housing authorities (PDF).
