The Tuscarawas Metropolitan Housing Authority has reopened its Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program waiting list.

TMHA’s waiting list has been closed since February 2013.

The program assists up to 574 low-income, elderly, handicapped and disabled families in Tuscarawas County with rent and utilities monthly. Section 8 assistance is income-based, but is not an entitlement program, therefore there is a waiting list to receive the assistance.

To be eligible for assistance through the program, a family’s total household income cannot be higher than 50 percent of the median household income for Tuscarawas County.

On July 9, completed pre-applications will be accepted at JIM’s Place, 228 W. High Ave., between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. Pre-applications will be available for completion on site.

Beginning July 15, pre-applications for the Section 8 HCV waiting list will be accepted at the TMHA administrative office at 134 Second St. SW on Tuesdays and Thursdays (excluding holidays and posted dates of closure) between 1:30 and 4 p.m.

Pre-applications must be completed and presented in person by the applicant. The TMHA office is wheelchair accessible. Contact TMHA at 330-308-8099 for reasonable accommodation. TMHA will not accept pre-applications that are mailed, emailed, faxed or not presented by the person who is applying.

Jefferson Parish Housing Authority recalling some Section 8 vouchers

The Jefferson Parish Housing Authority is recalling about two dozen recently issued Section 8 housing vouchers, including some from people who have already secured apartments.

The authority was subsidizing 4,664 units with Section 8 vouchers through April and there are about 10,000 people on the waiting list.

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development is reclassifying most of the authority’s $10 million in restricted net assets that the authority uses to make up for funding shortfalls in Section 8 program.

More than $8 million in the reserve account has been deemed as “notes payable” to HUD leaving only $1.8 million for the Section 8 program.

Before the accounting change, the authority held enough reserves to fund the maximum 4,730 vouchers for about three years. Also, additional vouchers could have been issued as people left the program.

Now the authority must halt issuing any new vouchers and recall some existing ones just to make it through the year.
