Jacksonville Housing Authority Section 8 HCV Waiting List : Closed

This information was last updated on April 1st, 2016.

The Jacksonville Housing Authority (JHA) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list is currently closed. It was last open for two days in February 2016, and prior to that in January 2013. There is no notice of when this waiting list will reopen.

Please note: There were two separate one day openings in the month; one for the general public, and one for elderly/disabled households. Elderly/disabled households who missed the opening were allowed to apply during the general public opening.

To apply to the general public waiting list during the opening period, applicants were required to visit Jacksonville Fairgrounds to submit a pre-application.

To apply for the elderly/disabled waiting list during the opening period, applicants were required to visit the JHA office to submit a pre-application.

The following documents were required when submitting the pre-application: Federal of State-issued ID.

It is not known if there were any preferences, or how applicants were placed on the waiting list. We have contacted the JHA, and will update this page whe more information becomes available.

Applicants can check their status on the waiting list online here one month after applying.

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 In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list.

Applicants placed on the waiting list can update pre-application information at the second floor help desk of the JHA office, located at 1300 N Broad Street, Jacksonville, Florida 32202.

For more information, visit the JHA website, or call the office at (904) 630-3810.

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.
