OCHA is not accepting pre-applications for rental assistance at this time.
If you submitted a pre-application between February 15, 2012 and February 29, 2012, you may check your status at any time by visiting www.waitlistcheck.com . You will need your 4-digit date of birth and social security number to log-in and view your position status.
On March 1, 2013, the Federal government implemented a 5% reduction in funding for numerous programs including the funding for Housing Choice Vouchers. These funding cuts are mandated by Sequestration and may require OCHA to reduce the number of families currently assisted. The Department of HUD has instructed that housing authorities cannot issue new Housing Vouchers under these circumstances.
We sincerely regret this delay and are hopeful that Congress will approve a 2014 Federal budget that will enable housing authorities to resume issuing Vouchers to families on the waiting list sometime in 2014.
