The Wichita Housing Authority (WHA) will postpone the opening of the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher tenant based rent assistance program due to concerns related to COVID-19. Applications to the waitlist, originally scheduled to open on April 1, should be submitted electronically.
Public internet access is currently limited with the closure of public facilities such as Wichita Public Libraries and Neighborhood Resource centers, impacting the decision to postpone the opening.
The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program provides rent assistance to income eligible families in order to make housing affordable. The WHA Housing Choice Voucher program service area includes all of Sedgwick and Butler counties and Harvey County outside of the city of Newton.
New public notices will be issued upon determination of a new date for opening the waitlist.
