[ARCHIVED] Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Waiting List Opens Sept. 11-15

Housing Choice Voucher Section 8 Waiting List Open Online Only Sept. 11-15

The Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) waiting list will open beginning at 8 a.m. on Sept. 11 and will close at midnight on Sept. 15, 2017.

Application process

To better serve applicants and to make the application process available to all, the entire application process will be available online at or beginning at 8 a.m., Sept. 11.

Status information regarding placement on the list will be available online shortly after the closing date. Instructions regarding obtaining status information are provided during the online application process. Applications can only be provided online or by advance written request to James City County Housing. No applications will be available at the County offices.

Selection process

Due to limited funding availability, applications will be selected and ordered using a random lottery system. Not all applicants will be placed on the waiting list. By randomly selecting the applications received for placement on the waiting list, the process is equitable.

The time and date of receipt of the application online has no bearing on whether an application will be selected for the waiting list. There is no need or advantage to applying immediately after the list opens.

Waiting list preference will be given to current residents of James City County.

For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation for a disability, contact James City County Housing at 757-259-5340.
