The Georgia Department of Community Affairs (GDCA) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list for all covered counties is currently closed. The waiting list for all covered counties was last open for one week in February 2016. 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.
To apply during the opening period, applicants were required to complete the online pre-application.
The following preferences were identified: Live, work, or have been hired to work in the county you apply to.
Applicants were placed on the waiting list by random lottery, after sorting preferences.
Important note: Applicants will receive a confirmation number when either applying, or being placed on the waiting list, depending on housing authority policy. It is important to keep that number in a safe, easy to access place. It will be needed any time when referencing your pre-application with the housing authority.
If any of your application information changes from the time you submitted the original pre-application (such as contact information, income, and household members), inform the housing authority immediately. In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list.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 who have been placed on the waiting list will be notified by mail. Applicants may also visit this website, or call the application assistance line at 1 (888) 858-6085 to find out if their confirmation number has been selected four weeks after the waiting list has closed.
