Waterbury Housing Authority
The Housing Authority of the City of Waterbury (WHA) will be accepting Preliminary
Applications for the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program (formerly known as the
Section 8 Program). The HCV Program is a federally -funded program which subsidizes
decent, safe, and sanitary housing for low income persons. Applicants must meet all
U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development income and eligibility guidelines.
Interested applicants must apply online:
between August 15, 2016 at 8:30 a.m. and August 17, 2016 at 4:30 p.m.
Only one pre-application per family will be accepted; duplicate pre-applications will be disqualified.
This pre-application is accessible through any computer, tablet or smart phone. If you require a reasonable accommodation, please call 203-596-2640 x116, Monday–Friday from 9:00 am–4:00 pm.
The Waterbury Housing Authority will have a computer available on Tuesday, August 16th, 2016-Wednesday August 17th, 2016 from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. as a reasonable accommodation at 2 Lakewood Road, Waterbury, CT.
After successfully completing the pre-application, you may print the confirmation.
The Waterbury Housing Authority will use a Random-Draw Lottery System to determine the order of each pre-application on the waiting list, and a maximum of 2,000 pre-applications. Those chosen in the lottery will be notified by mail no later than September 30, 2016. All disqualified and remaining applications not selected will be discarded with no further notice.
