HOUSING CHOICE VOUCHER PROGRAM (SECTION 8)

WAITING LIST STATUS UPDATE

 

The Housing Authority of the City of Decatur, Georgia’s (DHA) Housing Choice Voucher program (Section 8) waiting list was open between October 26-October 30, 2020.  

 

Completing and submitting an electronic application did not guarantee placement on the waiting list. DHA used an outside agency to conduct random lottery selections for placement on the waiting list from all applications received. A maximum of 4,000 applicants were selected for placement on the actual waiting list. All other applications were discarded.  

No eligibility documents are required at this time. You are not required to notify DHA of changes to your household at this time. Eligibility and Waiting List Preferences will be verified when the applicant is being considered for housing. Failure to provide the necessary documentation of a preference will mean that you are not eligible for a preference on the waiting list.  

 

Household members will be verified when the applicant is being considered for housing.

 

If you are selected for the waiting list, please remember that you must notify DHA in writing of a change in your email address and mailing address if you change it after your application date.  Your mailing address is used to contact you at the time of selection from the waiting list. You may be removed from the waiting list if you fail to respond.

WAITING LIST STATUS

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

 

Notification of an applicant’s status is being made by email only. The email notification will tell applicants if they were selected for the waiting list or not.  Only one email will be sent to applicants to notify them of their status. All applicants will not receive their email at the same time. No telephone or email confirmations will be given and no in person confirmations will be given at the DHA office.

 

Only one email will be sent to applicants to notify them of their status. If your email address has changed since you completed your application or the email sent to you bounces back because it is undeliverable, you must check DHA’s website in mid-January 2021 to see if your confirmation number is listed. If your confirmation number does not appear, you were not selected for the waiting list.

 

The confirmation numbers of applicants selected for the waiting list will be posted on DHA’s website, www.decaturhousing.org

in mid-January 2021. If your confirmation number does not appear on DHA’s website, you were not selected for the waiting list. No telephone or email confirmations will be given and no in person confirmations will be given at the DHA office.  

In February 2021, applicants selected for the waiting list may call the Waiting List Line,

404-270-2116, and follow the prompts to verify their position on the waiting list.
