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
12 months or more on the waiting list is not uncommon.
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.
