      Alabama Cities That Have Housing Choice Voucher Open Enrollment

      HUD Voucher Program Waiting List

      It is easier to obtain Section 202 Low-Income Senior Housing because residents do not have to go through the lengthy process of signing up with the Housing Choice Voucher Program administered through the local Public Housing Authority (PHA). However, if you are interested in finding out how to obtain Income Housing for Seniors using the HUD Section 8 program just read on to learn what steps are needed:

      Waiting To Get On The Waiting List

      The first obstacle to tackle is to just get on the waiting list to be interviewed. Many cities and municipalities keep their waiting lists closed due to too much demand and only open enrollment to the waiting list every few years. When they do have Open Enrollment, they will place announcements in the local newspapers and sometimes on-air as public service announcements. But coverage is scant and Open Enrollment is usually only a few days, maybe a week at best. So those who are trying to keep an ear out for openings have to check their local newspapers every day to ensure they don't miss it.

      However, there are a few Public Housing Authorities within Alabama that tend to keep their enrollment open all of the time.
