Seattle Washington – What is a Section 8 waiting list?

Since the demand for a Section 8 or HUD application as it is sometimes called, often exceeds the limited resources available to HUD and the local housing agencies, long waiting periods are common. In fact, a Housing Authority may close its waiting list when it has more families on the list than can be assisted in the near future. Each PHA has the discretion to establish local preferences to reflect the housing needs and priorities of its particular community.

Preferences establish the order of applicants on a Section 8 waiting list. Applicants will be positioned on the waiting list based upon the number of preference points for which they are qualified, date and time of application. Applicants who qualify for the highest number of preference points will be position ahead of those who qualify for fewer or no preference points on the waiting list. An admissions preference does not guarantee admission. Every applicant must still meet SHA admissions screening criteria before being offered a Housing Choice Voucher or a Public Housing Unit. Preferences will be granted to applicants on the waiting list who are otherwise qualified and/or who, at the time of application processing, are verified to meet the definitions of the preference described below. Preferences will not have the purpose or effect of delaying or otherwise denying admission to the program based on race, color, ethnic origin, gender, religion, disability, or age of any member of an applicant family.

Would I be able to apply for Section 8 and Food Stamps (SNAP) at the same time in Seattle Washington?

The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), formerly known as food stamps, helps families and individuals afford groceries. If eligible, clients will receive an EBT card (similar to a debit card) which will be reloaded monthly with an allotted amount of money to be used to purchase food. The food bank’s SNAP Outreach Team will guide applicants through the SNAP application process, help them prepare for an interview with a SNAP caseworker, and answer general questions about the SNAP program. The Section 8 housing program is ran by a completely different agency.

The SNAP or Food Stamp program is a separate entity from the Housing Authority. You must apply for Food Stamps separately. The process is completely free.
