Lancaster County Housing Authority, Pennsylvania, plans to accept online applications for Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Housing starting on October 2, 2023, at 7:30 am ET and ending on October 5, 2023, at 4:30 pm ET. During the application period, you can access the online application at waitlistcheck.com/PA835 and enter an application at any time of day or night. We will accept only a single application from any one household, so submitting multiple applications will not increase your chances of receiving housing assistance. Only the first application submitted per household will be considered.  Please note that you will be required to create an account and have a valid Gmail address in order to submit an application. A link to create a free Gmail account will be included on the website for your convenience.

Five Hundred (500) applications for inclusion on the waiting list are being selected randomly, by lottery.  The day and time an application is submitted during the application period will have no effect on whether the application is selected in the lottery and will not determine whether an applicant will receive an offer of housing from this agency. Anyone who submits an application during the application period will have an equal opportunity to be placed on the waiting list.

Applicants selected in the lottery are not guaranteed eligibility for housing. Being selected by the lottery only means that the selected applications will be placed on the waiting list. Once on the waiting list, you may receive an offer of a voucher, but only if you are eligible for subsidized housing under Federal law and only when vouchers become available through this agency.

If an application is not selected in the lottery, it will not be placed on any current or future waiting list. The only opportunity for inclusion on a future waiting list for a Housing Choice Voucher with our agency will be to reapply when the waiting list is re-opened again.

Anyone interested in applying that does not have access to a computer and the online application is encouraged to apply at your local library (Library System of Lancaster County) or the following locations:  Brightside Opportunities Center, The Factory Ministries, Tenfold, Good Samaritan Services, or CrossNet Ministries.

If you have a disability where reasonable accommodation to allow you equal access to the application process may be needed, please contact the Lancaster County Housing Authority at 717-394-0793 to request accommodation no later than 09/25/2023.

The Lancaster County Housing Authority does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, gender, sex, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, familial status or source of income.  AN EQUAL OPPORTUNITY HOUSING AGENCY

La Autoridad de Vivienda del Condado de Lancaster, Pennsylvania, planea aceptar solicitudes por internet para Cupones de Preferencia de Vivienda (Sección 8) a partir del 2 de Octubre del 2023 a las 7:30 a. m. Zona Este de Horario (Eastern Time) y finalizando el 5 de Octubre del 2023 a las 4:30 p. m. Zona Este de Horario (Eastern Time).  Durante el período de solicitud, usted puede acceder a la solicitud en internet en:  waitlistcheck.com/PA835 e ingresar una solicitud en cualquier momento del día o de la noche.  Aceptaremos solo una solicitud de cada hogar, por lo que enviar varias solicitudes no aumentará sus posibilidades de recibir asistencia para la vivienda.  Sólo se considerará la primera solicitud presentada por hogar.  Tenga en cuenta que se le pedirá que cree una cuenta y tenga un correo electronico de Gmail válido para poder enviar una solicitud.  Para su comodidad, se incluirá un enlace para crear una cuenta gratuita de Gmail en el sitio web.

Quinientas (500) solicitudes para inclusión a la lista de espera se seleccionan al azar mediante sorteo.  El día y la hora en que se presente la solicitud durante el período de aplicaciones no tendrán ningún efecto sobre si la solicitud es seleccionada en la lotería y no determinarán si un solicitante recibirá una oferta de vivienda de esta agencia.  Cualquiera que presente una solicitud durante el período de aplicaciones tendrá las mismas oportunidades de ser incluido en la lista de espera.

Los solicitantes seleccionados en la lotería no tienen garantizada la elegibilidad para la vivienda. Ser seleccionado por lotería solo significa que las solicitudes seleccionadas se colocarán en la lista de espera. Una vez que esté en la lista de espera, puede recibir una oferta de un cupon, pero solo si usted es elegible para recibir vivienda subsidiada según la ley federal y solo cuando los cupones estén disponibles a través de esta agencia.

Si una solicitud no es seleccionada en la lotería, no se colocará en ninguna lista de espera actual o futura. La única oportunidad para ser incluido en una futura lista de espera para un Cupones de Preferencia de Vivienda con nuestra agencia será volver a presentar una solicitud nueva cuando la lista de espera se vuelva a abrir.

Cualquier persona interesada en aplicar y que no tenga acceso a una computadora o a internet, se le recomienda aplicar desde alguna de las bibliotecas locales del Sistema de Bibliotecas del Condado de Lancaster, o en una de las siguientes ubicaciones: Brightside Opportunities Ctr, The Factory Ministries, Tenfold, Good Samaritan Services, Ministerios CrossNet.

Si tiene alguna discapacidad y que se necesite adaptaciones razonables para permitirle un acceso equitativo al proceso de solicitud, comuníquese con la Autoridad de Vivienda del Condado de Lancaster al 717-394-0793 para solicitar adaptaciones antes del 25/09/2023.
