This information was last updated on April 5th, 2016.
The West Orange Public Housing Agency (WOPHA) 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 2003.
West Orange, NJ is about 5 miles northwest of Newark, NJ.
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.
This application was for the opportunity to be placed on the WOPHA Section 8 HCV waiting list. Applicants placed on the waiting list must still go through a qualifying process before receiving assistance.
To apply during the opening period, applicants were required to submit an application at the council chambers. Pre-applications were not mailed.
The following preference was identified: Residents of West Orange, NJ.
150 applicants were placed on the waiting list by random lottery, after sorting preferences.
The wait time to receive a voucher is approximately 10 years.
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 application with the housing authority.
If any of your application information changes from the time you submitted the original 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 In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list. Please contact the housing authority to find out its policy on updating application information.
