Lebanon County Housing Authority Section 8 HCV Waiting List : Open Indefinitely

This information was last updated on August 31st, 2016.

The Lebanon County Housing Authority (LCHA) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list is currently open. This waiting list opened on April 7, 2016, and is open indefinitely. It was last open in 2010.

Please note: Applicants will be placed on this waiting list by random lottery, meaning the time you submit the pre-application has no affect on your position on the waiting list. There are cases of applicants flooding the website as soon as a scheduled online waiting list opens, causing the website to crash for a period of time. If the website is down, it will eventually be back up to accept pre-applications.

To apply, complete the online pre-application. The pre-application is available in English and Spanish.

If an applicant does not have access to the Internet, they can use a friend or family member's computer, or one at a local library.

Applicants will be placed on the waiting list by random lottery. A lottery drawing will be held after May 7, 2016.

No more information has been provided about this opening. We have contacted the LCHA, and will update this page when more information becomes available.

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 In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list.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 LCHA website, or call the office at (717) 273-1630 from 8:30 am until 4:30 pm ET, Monday-Friday.

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.

Webster Manor-stev 84/100 10/14/2014
