I'M ON THE WAITLIST. WHAT DO I NEED TO KNOW?
The waitlist is currently closed to new applicants. There is no scheduled time to re-open the waitlist.
There are many families and individuals who have applied for housing assistance and are on the waitlist for the Public Housing, Housing Choice Voucher Tenant-Based, and Housing Choice Voucher Moderate Rehabilitation Project Based programs. We cannot precisely predict when your name will reach the top of the list.
Reaching the top of the waitlist depends on the available number of units and vouchers, when you applied, and any selection preferences you may have indicated on your application such as “veteran” or “disabled.” When your name reaches the top, DCHA will contact you to schedule a final eligibility interview.
