Seattle Housing Authority Housing Choice Voucher waitlist lottery to open February 6

On Monday, February 6, 2017, Seattle Housing Authority (SHA) will open a lottery for 3,500 places on a new waitlist for the Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program, formerly known as Section 8. These vouchers provide rental assistance for people with low incomes to rent homes owned by landlords in the private market.

Registration for the lottery will be available online only, and will be open from 8 a.m. on February 6, 2017 until 5 p.m. on February 24, 2017, Pacific Time.

Registration is only available at, not at any other website. Registration is free; if any website asks for money to complete registration it is not the correct site. The only way to safely register and avoid misleading websites is to type into an internet browser.  Learn more>
