Housing Choice Voucher Program Waitlist OPEN
January 14 @ 8:00 am - January 18 @ 5:00 pm
The waiting list for the Housing Choice Voucher Program will be open from 8am, January 14th, 2019
through 5:00pm, Friday, January 18th, 2019. Applicants are asked to apply online at https://www.housing-works.org/vouchers/apply-for-a-voucher/
Please feel free to assist your clients in setting up a Rent Café account
and completing the online application form. The process is simple, but must be complete in order to be
accepted for processing.
Three years ago we implemented a new software program called Rent Café and each applicant must
have their own unique email address which will be their user ID. If you created an account for your
client in the past, just log onto the account, update their information and click the the 2019 HCV Waiting
list. There is a password reset link too. If that doesn’t work for some reasons please call us for
assistance. If you are entering new clients in the system this year, please be aware that you must also
have your client’s social security number. We will not accept applications with a 999-99-9999 social
security number as it creates many duplicates in the system.
The time applications are received during the week does not impact their position on the list. All
applications taken during this time frame will be randomized by the software and placed on the waiting
list to give all applicants an equal chance.
New this year is a preference for the 40 Mainstream Vouchers awarded. This preference is specifically
for non-elderly persons with disabilities who are transitioning out of institutional or other segregated
settings, at serious risk of institutionalization, homeless or at risk of becoming homeless. If your client
meets that preference, please be sure to check the Mainstream box when applying.
