How does Section 8 notify the public when the application waiting list opens?

Hud advises each Section 8 housing authority to notify its constituents of an in the following manner:

“OPENING THE WAITING LIST
ADVERTISING AND OUTREACH SUGGESTIONS
• Submit press release to local newspapers, including minority newspapers.
• Write and submit a human-interest story with photographs to a local newspaper.
• Distribute flyers or applications through schools, community agencies, welfare
offices, employers, union offices, neighborhood groups, hospitals, commercial
establishments (supermarkets, discount stores, laundromats), libraries, and
churches.
• Print mail-in applications in local newspapers, including minority papers.
• Request community service announcements through local television and radio.
• Purchase advertising on subways and buses.
• Purchase advertising in local newspapers, including minority papers.
• Ask supportive service organizations to participate in the outreach effort.
• Solicit referrals from agencies working with families least likely to apply”

I don’t know about you, but I have not seen any of such advertising. Soon, by becoming a member you’ll be notified of such openings by email as I research them further.

    First you should call your local Section 8 housing authority and find out if they’re taking applications or you can register here to get the list of your local offices taking new applicants. Depending on your situation you might qualify for the Preference System.
