Every week, Affordable Housing Online announces the latest Section 8 waiting list openings for renters in search of low-income housing assistance in the U.S.
Many of the waiting lists listed on AHO have different requirements on how to apply. And sometimes, it can be hard to find all the important details about qualifying. AHO gathers all of this information to save renters time in their housing search.
This week, the start of new year stays strong with two (2) new openings in big parts of the country!
Select the links below to get information on how to apply before these waiting lists close.
Note: Applicants do not need to live in the area to apply to most waiting lists. Once a waiting list closes, it may stay closed for many years.
