Your local public housing agency will have information about Section 8 or Housing Choice Voucher wait lists. If you are already on a waiting list, contact the agency you applied with. Contact information for local housing agencies is available from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development at HUD.gov.
Some public housing agencies provide general information about the length of the Section 8 or Housing Choice Voucher waiting lists on their websites. These programs can have long waiting lists, up to multiple years, but public housing agencies also offer other services to assist with affordable housing for people on the waiting list.
