Pre-applications for placement on the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) waiting list program will be accepted starting Friday July 1, 2022 @ 8:00 AM, through Friday July 8, 2022 @ 5:00 PM. If interested in applying for the HCV waiting list, visit https://www.waitlistcheck.com/TX1128-3917.
A valid email address is needed to complete the preliminary application. HATC will only accept electronic applications. The application process will require a username and password creation. This username/password will allow applicants to check the status of their pre application by visiting https://www.waitlistcheck.com/ 45-60 days following submission of the application.
If special accommodations or assistance is needed in completing this application, please contact Director of Voucher Programs and Homeless Initiatives: Christina Montes at 512-854-1883 or email email@example.com or Housing Manager: Victoria Perez at 512-854-6268 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

All eligible pre-applications submitted via the website will be entered into an electronic lottery system and a waitlist number will be randomly assigned. After the lottery assigns the ranking, only 500 applications will be randomly selected from all pre-applications submitted. The pre- applications will then be placed on the HCV waiting list in sequential order based on the assigned lottery number, and then sorted by preference to determine position on the waiting list. For selecting applicants from the waiting list, HATC assigns a preference to homeless and non-elderly disabled applicants. All eligible applications submitted regardless of these preferences will be entered into the lottery selection process.
If the pre- application is not selected through the random lottery process, the applicant will need to reapply when the waiting list re-opens. When any preference is selected on the pre application, documentation of that homeless or disability preference will be required if selected for placement on the waiting list. Proof of the preference will be reverified at the time the applicants name reaches the top of the waiting list.
