Charlotte Housing Authority Section 8 HCV Waiting List : Closed

This information was last updated on April 5th, 2016.

The Charlotte Housing Authority (CHA) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list is currently closed. It was last open for five days in September 2014, and prior to that in 2007. It is not known 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: Homeless families, veterans, working families, near elderly and victims of domestic violence.

As of September 22, 2014, more than 5,200 people visited the Charlotte waiting list pre-application web site and 4,000 had completed pre-applications.  At times, the website was inaccessible because of too much traffic.

By the end of the waiting list opening period, 32,128 people had applied. This is more than three times the number of applications received during the last opening of the waiting list in 2007.

The Charlotte Housing Authority will be sending out letters to those that applied with further instructions.  Given the volume of applicants, we would expect this process to take a while.

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 In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list.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

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.
