The State of Connecticut Department of Housing and its contractor, J.D' Amelia & Associates, will open the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program and State Rental Assistance Program (RAP) waiting lists statewide on August 4, 2014. Pre-applications will be accepted by mail and must be postmarked between the dates of August 4, 2014 and August 18, 2014. Online applications will also be accepted until 5 p.m. on August 18, 2014.
Filling out the pre-application form will put a household in a lottery for possible inclusion on the waiting lists for both programs. Five thousand applications will be chosen by lottery for the Section 8 waiting list. Three thousand applications will be chosen for RAP.
The pre-application form and notice announcing the opening of the Section 8 HCV Program and Rental Assistance Program waiting lists will appear in area newspapers for three consecutive days starting August 4, 2014. Pre-applications will also be available at the Connecticut Department of Housing Website, www.ct.gov/doh.
