Woonsocket, Rhode Island Section 8 HCV Waiting List : Closed

This information was last updated on September 19th, 2016.

The Woonsocket Housing Authority (WHA) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list is currently closed. It was last open for one day in September 2016. There is no notice of when this waiting list will reopen.

Woonsocket, RI is about 15 miles northwest of Providence, RI.

To apply during the opening period, applicants were required to pick up an application at the parking lot of the St. John the Baptist Romanian Orthodox Church.

Once the application was completed, it must have been mailed to the WHA, from September 19, 2016 until October 3, 2016. Applications postmarked outside of those dates were not accepted.

This waiting list has preferences, but we have been unable to confirm them with the WHA. We have left a message with the office, and will update this page when more information becomes available.

Applicants were placed on the waiting list by date and time the application is received, after sorting preferences.

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 In the case that the office sends a notice that does not get returned, or if application information is out of date, your name may be terminated from the waiting list.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 WHA website, or call the office at (401) 767-8000.

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.
