Affordable Housing Online is monitoring the federal government's response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak.
An extensive list of coronavirus resources for low-income households can be found here.
There is no universal nationwide waiting list for any affordable housing program.
Section 8 and Public Housing waiting lists are managed by Public Housing Authorities, which serve a specific jurisdiction at the local level, whether it is on a city or county-wide basis. There are very few housing authorities that manage a waiting list for an entire state, and if they do, there tends to be a separate waiting list for each county. The only single state-wide Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list we are aware of is the Massachusetts Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Centralized Waiting List; but not all housing authorities in the state are participants and manage their own waiting list instead.
You can find information on how to apply to open Section 8 waiting lists nationwide here, and open Public Housing waiting lists here.
