The Section 8 Waiting List will open starting Monday, September 20, 2021 @ 8:00 AM CT.
The waiting list will remain open as long as it is manageable.
Pre-application forms and instructions are available at CHA’s Administration Building at 201 Switzler St., Columbia, MO 65203 or you can download the forms below.
Pre-Applications must be submitted in person and the applicant will be placed on the waiting list according to the date and time the application is accepted.
Do not fax or mail your Pre-Application
It is the responsibility of the applicant to provide all required information and answer all questions completely on the pre-application form.
For every household member you must include their Social Security Card and Birth Certificate. For members 18 and older you must also provide a Photo ID with your application.
If your pre-application form is incomplete, not signed, or does not contain all of the required information and documents, it will not be accepted- there will be no exceptions.
Please read and follow the instructions to avoid a rejected application!
Applicants must be determined eligible and qualify within the regulations of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development and CHA Policies. Being placed on the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waitlist does not guarantee you will receive rental assistance.
