Tampa Housing Authority Section 8 HCV Waiting List : Closed

This information was last updated on April 12th, 2016.

Please note: The Tampa Housing Authority covers Hillsborough County, FL.

The Tampa Housing Authority (THA) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list is currently closed. It was last open in October 2006. There is no notice of when this waiting list will reopen.

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.

During the opening period, the THA received more than 10,000 applications.

The THA identified the following preferences: Employed, attending a school of secondary education, rent burdened, homeless, disabled, or living in substandard conditions.

Applicants were placed on the waiting list list by random lottery, after sorting preferences.

According to this news article, as of April 2016, there are 8,100 people currently on the waiting list.

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 In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list.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

For more information, visit the THA website, or call the office at (813) 253-0551.

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.
