One of your most important responsibilities is to report to CHA any changes in your income or in the size of your household.
You are required to report changes within 10 working days by submitting documentation to CHA. All forms are available for download from this page, or from the CHA Administrative Building located at 201 Switzler Street Columbia MO 65203.
Always check to make sure each form is signed and dated by all adults in the household, and submit your forms to CHA’s office. For your rent to be adjusted next month, all of your completed forms must be submitted before the 15th of the current month.
For more information, call us at (573) 443-2556
If Income Changes in Your Household
CHA must receive written verification of the change. Verification is usually a letter from the source of income, for example: a letter from your employer stating that your job has ended.
If Someone Leaves Your Household
If You Have a New Child in Your Family
You must report the new addition of a child within 10 business days of the child’s birth, adoption, or court-awarded custody. Documentation may be required.
If You Add a New Adult to Your Household
You may not add a new adult to your household unless it has been authorized by CHA. Please contact CHA when you want to add a person to your household. After we receive your request, and the packet of completed required documents, we will see if the person that you want to add meets eligibility requirements. We will then mail you a letter to set up an appointment to meet with your case manager to complete the process.
The Section 8 Waiting List is now open!
