Various Waiting Lists & Openings

The CDA administers the HUD-funded Housing Choice Voucher/Section 8 Program. This is a rental subsidy program that assists participants with their monthly rental payments. Participants locate a rental unit in the private marketplace and pay between 30-40% of their income towards the rent.

To apply for the program, the waiting list for the program must be open. Unfortunately, the waiting list opens infrequently because of limitations in the amount of vouchers the Scott County CDA is allowed to administer.
