    What cities/counties/states are currently accepting new applications for Section 8 housing?

    Our local city Housing Authorities are no longer offering new vouchers, accepting applications, or maintaining waiting lists. Is this the same throughout the country?

    No, you have to call each Housing Authority in every county in your state to see if they are taking applications.You can only apply in the state where you reside. It is a very tight situation all over the US especially in the larger cities.

    • Pretty much. Most close their lists when they are 5 years long. NY does it at 9 years.

    • You would probably have to move to an area that either has a smaller population or a higher employment rate. That way, not very many people would be looking for help.

    • I think that some Asia Pacific countries, India and most importantly Gulf states are currently accepting applications for section 8 housing but you can get more detailed information about it from http://www.bayut.com/community/ particularly about Gulf countries.
