Housing Choice Voucher Program Announcement
New Jersey Press Release -Housing Choice Voucher program announcement from the NJ Dept. of Community Affairs. Please help spread the word: DCA will be accepting pre-applications for the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program waiting list on Monday, February 4, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. until Friday, February 8, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. 15,000 pre-applications will be accepted statewide. All applications MUST be received electronically (online). Because pre-applications will be selected through a lottery process, it does not matter when a pre-application is submitted as long as it is completed during the open enrollment period. Every application submitted during the open enrollment period has a chance of being selected during the lottery – it is not a first come, first served setup. Use this link, https://www.WaitlistCheck.com/NJ559, to apply online, using a personal computer, laptop, smart phone, or tablet. Submission of a pre-application does not guarantee placement on the waiting list. Only one pre-application per household per county will be accepted. Duplicate pre-applications will be rejected. Paper pre-applications will not be distributed or accepted. Please note,, it is important you make a note of their user name and password for this website. You will need it again to see if you are selected for the waiting list, and later, to update their address or household composition, if applicable.
