The Quincy Housing Authority will open the Housing Choice Voucher/Section 8 waiting list at 9 a.m. Tuesday.

Section 8 vouchers administered by the QHA allow qualified persons to rent housing in the private market. The program is subsidized by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. Rents are based on income for qualified voucher holders.

Applications need to be filled out in person at the QHA, 540 Harrison. Applicants must have birth certificates and Social Security cards for everyone living in the household and a photo ID for all persons 18 years old and older. All applicants must live in the city of Quincy.

Applications will not be accepted from any person who has an unpaid debt with the QHA or any person that has had a drug-related arrest within the last three years.

Applicants on waiting lists for public housing must apply separately for the Housing Choice/Section 8 Program. People with disabilities who require a reasonable accommodation in completing an application may call the QHA at 222-0720 to make special arrangements.
