Section 8 Waiting List Status:
Affordable Housing Online is tracking the status of the Cambridge Housing Authority Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Waiting List. This is what we know as of our most recent update on November 2nd, 2016.
The Cambridge Housing Authority (CHA) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher and Project-Based Voucher waiting lists are currently open. These waiting lists opened on October 3, 2016 at 10:00 am ET, and are open indefinitely.
Cambridge, MA is about 3 miles west of Boston, MA.
Please note: This waiting list has preferences. This means that applicants who qualify for these preferences will receive assistance before applicants who do not. Because of these preferences, applicants who do not qualify may have a longer wait to receive assistance.
Applicants who require reasonable accommodation to complete the pre-application can contact the CHA at (617) 520-6406.
The following documentation is required of all members of the household: Social Security Number, name, date of birth, income.
Applicants who apply by October 31, 2016 will be placed on the waiting list by random lottery, after sorting preferences.
Applicants who apply after October 31, 2016 will be placed on the waiting list by date and time the pre-application is received, after sorting preferences.
Important note: Applicants who have been placed on the waiting list must inform the housing authority immediately if your application information changes (such as contact information, income, and household members). In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list. Contact the housing authority to find out how to update application information.
