When will I get called from the Housing choice voucher program waiting list for housing?

Being added to the waiting list does not mean that you will receive a voucher right away or that housing assistance is immediately available. As voucher/funding becomes available, SAHA will draw applicants from the waiting list on a periodic basis.
Once your name has reached the top of the waiting list, SAHA will invite you to attend an orientation meeting and we will provide you with an eligibility packet to complete before your eligibility interview. During the eligibility interview process, SAHA will verify the preferences you checked on your pre-application, conduct a criminal background check on all household members ages 18 years or older, and collect information on your family income, assets and family composition. SAHA will verify this information to determine your eligibility.
If your family submitted all required documents and has been determined eligible for the program, you will be required to attend a Housing Choice Voucher briefing where you will be issued a voucher.
