    Wait List Information

    Attention Families Looking for Section 8 Voucher Assistance 

    Watch out for SCAMS!  Reportedly, there are internet sites claiming to be application sites for voucher assistance.  They are taking fees and personal information from people claiming to put them on wait lists.  These are FRAUDULENT websites!  The only way you can apply for voucher assistance is on-line or directly through a local housing authority whenever the wait list is open.  

    The Housing Choice Voucher Program is closed!

    Tarrant County Housing Assistance Office opened their wait list on Tuesday, March 14, 2017, and acquired over 14,900 applications.

    OUR WAIT LIST IS CURRENTLY "CLOSED" and we anticipate being closed for the next seven years, possibly longer.

    Position Numbers were made available on April 1, 2017.  You can access your current status 24/7 on the Wait List Check Website at: Waitlist Check.  There is no need to contact or come into the Tarrant County Housing Assistance Office for status updates.  Please see Post Wait List Information below for additional information

    As a reminder, placement on the wait list does not determine eligibility for assistance.

    When your number is reached on the wait list you will be contacted in writing only with instructions on what you must do for us to determine if you are eligible for assistance. 

    It is important for you to remember to contact this office in writing with any change of address.  Failure to do so will cause you to be removed from the wait list.
