District of Columbia Housing Authority Section 8 HCV Waiting List : Closed

This information was last updated on January 4th, 2016.

The District of Columbia Housing Authority (DCHA) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list is currently closed. This waiting list was last open in April 2013. It is not known when the waiting list will reopen.

Once the waiting list closed in 2013, with just more than 14,000 vouchers available, there were more than five-times more families on the waiting list than the number of vouchers the DCHA could give out.

As of May 2015, there are still more than 41,000 households on the waiting list, according to a post on the blog Poverty & Policy. As explained in the blog post, almost half of those still on the list identified as homeless.

For more information, visit the DCHA website, or call the office at (202) 535-1500.

Public Housing Property Inspection Scores

All public housing projects and privately owned rental properties with project-based Section 8 contracts are inspected every 1 to 3 years by HUD’s Real Estate Assessment Center (REAC). The mission of REAC is to insure that HUD’s multifamily portfolio is well maintained, free of health and safety risks for tenants and to prevent waste, fraud and abuse in HUD’s multifamily programs.

The highest REAC score possible is 100 points. Points are awarded in five inspectable areas: site, building exteriors, common areas, systems and units. Points may be weighted differently for different property types. For example, an urban property with little to no grounds might have a score weighted more on the building exteriors and less on the site whereas a suburban property with acres of land will be weighted more on the site review.

The frequency of REAC inspections is determined by the last REAC score a property received. If a property receives a REAC score of 90 or higher, the next REAC inspection will be scheduled in 3 years. Scores of 80 to 89 require re-inspection in 2 years and scores of 60 to 79 require re-inspection in a year.

A score of less than 60 is considered failing. Scores of 31 to 59 require re-inspection in 60 days and scores of 30 or lower are referred to a HUD Enforcement Center for corrective action.
