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.
