Section 8 Waiting List
PUBLIC NOTICE OF TUSCARAWAS MHA SECTION 8 HCV WAITING LIST RE-OPENING
for Rental Assistance Form
How long is the Waiting List?
The length of the waiting list will vary. Basically, new
clients can only be assisted when current clients leave the
rental assistance program or if TMHA receives new funding.
The number of clients leaving assistance each month will vary
so it is hard to tell when you will be served. Our current
procedure is to post a sign in the TMHA office that states
that we are currently serving applicants who signed up on
the waiting list before a specific date. (Month/Day/Year)
This information can also be obtained by calling the office.
The length of your wait is hard to estimate, but a wait of
6 months or more on the waiting list is not uncommon.
When can I sign up on the waiting list?
On July 18, 2018 (see public notice above) pre-applications will be accepted from 9:00 am
to 12:00 pm at JIM's Place, 228 W High Ave, New Philadelphia, Ohio. Thereafter, beginning on July 24, 2018,
pre-applications will be taken on Tuesday & Thursday
afternoons from 1:30 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Tuscarawas Metropolitan
Housing Authority office in New Philadelphia. This is what
is known as the pre-application process and only takes a short
time to complete. At this time we will not be verifying any
specific information about your family so there is no need
to bring anything with you.
What if I can't come in to sign up on the waiting list?
When the waiting list is open, the pre-application can be printed off the TMHA web-site,
saving you the time to come in and pick it up.
However, because of legal and confidentiality issues, an adult
household member must come in personally to submit and sign
the pre-application with TMHA personnel. If you have
personal issues that absolutely prevent your appearance at
our office, call us to discuss the situation.
What if I am in an emergency situation?
The Section 8 program was not designed as an emergency intervention
program, and we cannot use funding for this purpose. Each
applicant must be placed on the waiting list. Sometimes emergency
help can be provided by other agencies here in the community
based on your specific circumstances.
