Arlington’s Housing Choice Voucher Program Accepting Applications

Articles Housing 06-05-15

As a way of helping some low-income families achieve the American Dream of homeownership, the City of Arlington’s Housing Authority (AHA) will accept applications from persons interested in participating in its Housing Choice Voucher program. Applications will be accepted during the open enrollment period beginning Thursday, June 18, 2015, at 9:00 a.m., through Wednesday, June 24, 2015, at 11:00 a.m. Current applicants must re-apply during this Open Enrollment to be considered.

The AHA will only accept applications via its website during open enrollment. Applicants can apply 24 hours per day from any public or private computer at www.arlingtonhousing.us.

Applicants may use computer equipment at any branch of the Arlington Public Library or a computer kiosk at the AHA office located at 501 W. Sanford, Suite 20, Arlington, TX, 76011. Applicants with physical disability needing assistance to apply may contact the AHA during the open enrollment period at 817-276-6722. To apply, applicants must have an active email address. Applicants in need of an email address may register for a free account through an internet provider of their choice. To ensure the application process is accessible, equitable and available to all, applications received will be randomly assigned a position on the waiting list. Time and date of application will not be used to establish an applicant’s position on the waiting list. Application status and information regarding placement on the waiting list will be available online after June 29, 2015.

The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program is a rental housing assistance program funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). The HCV program assists very low income persons, families, the elderly, and persons with disabilities to reside in safe, decent, rental housing they can afford.

Thanks for your comment, Joyce. Citizens can only apply for the Housing Choice Voucher Rental Assistance program when the Waiting List is open and accepting applications. Because the Waiting List usually contains over 10,000 applicants, the Housing Authority only opens the Waiting List for new applications every few years, once the number of applicants on the list has decreased. Fortunately, the next Open Enrollment period will take place next week and anyone can complete an application on the Waiting List at that time. Open Enrollment begins at 9:00am on June 18, and closes at 11:00am on June 24. Please read… Read more »
