How To Check Your Application Status After Applying For Section 8

The most important thing after applying for Section 8 is tracking the application's progress. Here are 3 things you can do in order to check your waiting list status.

How To Check Your Application Status After Applying For Section 8_1

1. Contact The Public Housing Agency (PHA)

The best way to keep checking your waiting list status is contacting your PHA. Remember to consult the same office where you submitted your application, because the situation may vary in different regions.

2. Check Online By Yourself

There's also an online waitlist check service called "Waitlistcheck." You can log in using your birth year and password, and then it will give you the updated application status. This is the simplest and the most convenient way for you, as you can do it anywhere at any time.

3. Call Your Authority Office

Alternatively, why not contact the authority office directly? Our website provides detailed information of the housing authority, including address and phone number. Just find the PHA where you applied and make a phone call. The manager will tell you whether your application has been approved or not.

It's crucial to monitor the progress of your application so that you'll be able to take action as soon as the PHA responds to you. It might take some time for the PHA to respond, and during this period, many people tend to forget about their application. Using any of the options mentioned in this article, you can keep a good eye on the application progress.
