Waiting List Reopens For Housing Choice Voucher Program

Monday, September 10, 2018

The Chattanooga Housing Authority will create a new waiting list for the Housing Choice Voucher Program through the use of an online lottery system, CHA officials said.

 

The preliminary application will only be available online. It will open Thursday at 12:01 a.m. and close at 11:59 p.m. The link to the application will be posted at www.chahousing.org.

 

Paper applications will not be available or accepted; however, computers and assistance will be available at the Chattanooga Housing Authority office, located at 801 N Holtzclaw Ave. on Thursday from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. 

 

Each applicant may only submit one application for the lottery. If the CHA receives more than one application for an applicant, they will be disqualified from participation in the lottery.

 

“With this type of lottery system, there is no advantage based on date and time for the submission of an application. The order of the waiting list will be determined by random selection through third party software,” said Tammie Carpenter, director of the Housing Choice Voucher Program at CHA. “At noon on September 20th, the applicants who have randomly been assigned numbers 1 – 1,000 will be placed on the HCVP waiting list.”

 

CHA receives federal funds from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) to administer the Housing Choice Voucher Program. The Housing Choice Voucher program is a federal government program for assisting low-income families, the elderly and the disabled to afford decent, safe, and sanitary housing in the private market.
