STEP, Inc. and Virginia Housing will open the Housing Choice Voucher Waiting List on Thursday, November 4, to take applications.
The program will accept applications ONLINE ONLY from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m.
STEP’s waiting list area covers Bedford, Franklin and Patrick counties.
The online application allows applicants to apply at their convenience from any laptop or desktop computer or mobile device during the time that applications are accepted. The website to apply is vhda.apply4housing.com.
Those who apply will be chosen randomly by lottery to be added to the waiting list. Not everyone who applies will be added to the waiting list.
Applicants will receive a confirmation number once their application is submitted indicating the application was received. Receiving a confirmation number does not guarantee you will be added to the waiting list.
Anyone can apply on behalf of another applicant. Applications will not be taken by phone, mail or in person. If the applicant is a person with a disability and they require an accommodation to apply, contact the STEP, Inc. staff for assistance to apply during the opening period.
