Provo City Housing Authority Section 8 HCV Waiting List : Open Indefinitely

This information was last updated on July 22nd, 2015.

The Provo City Housing Authority Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program is currently open and accepting applications.

The housing authority has a waiting list preference for person who live or work in Provo, Utah.  On the Provo City Housing Authority website they say "the number of qualified Provo resident applicants is so high that non-Provo residents will never reach the top of the waiting list."

This preference does not prohibit non-locals from applying as Federal law allows anyone from anywhere to apply to any Section 8 waiting list in the country.  However, if the number of local preference applicants on the waiting list are many, then non-local applicants will effectively never move far enough up the waiting list to receive assistance.

Though the housing authority does not publish on their website how long the waiting list is, reports from users who have spoken to housing authority staff are that the waiting list is 6 to 9 months long.

The Section 8 application is here:  http://provohousing.org/pdf/CombinedApplication2011.pdf.  The housing authority uses the same application for their public housing properties but maintains a separate HCV waiting lists.

The application will need to be printed out, completed, and mailed back or dropped off at the housing authority office at 650 West 100 North
Provo, Utah 84601.

The housing authority has an informative web page about their waiting list here: http://provohousing.org/waiting-list/.

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.
