Hi denalle

You will have to call the Housing and Urban Development(HUD) department of your city and check out the status of your Section 8 application. If your section 8 application was already accepted and if you have applied for an apartment, the property manager of that building can find it out for you.

Thanks.

Hi KATHYA,

You will have to contact the Public Housing Authority of your state and get the information from them. They will help you in knowing the status of your section 8 application.

Thanks

how is it that this website gets all these queries from folk asking the status of their section 8 application? does someone here have a direct connection with hud?

and what i really don't get, most of all, is why these people don't contact the person with whom they discussed their applications in the first place. if i lived in hartford, connecticut and applied for section 8 assistance with the local office, i think i'd realize that's who i would call back for an update on my application.

i am baffled by all this.

people, people, people...posters who are seeking information on their section 8 status: you will not learn anything by asking questions of us on this forum. you need to contact the housing authority of the city or town you live in to get that information.

As George had mentioned in the last post, you need to get in touch with your local housing authority. Only they can provide you that piece of information.

MortgageFit.com is not your local housing authority.

Mr. Akerley This is true it is posted no where on-line but I think I get the ppl that is asking. I think that they are not getting any real answers from these receptionist that answer these phones for the section 8 units. Matter of fact I know for sure that's what's happening because I've contacted them quite a few times. They do give you, your number on the list but they will not tell you where they are at on the list. so in all true reality they are not giving you any info. I'm 263 on the waiting list and still haven't heard anything all my info is the same but no one has contact me. and when I call all they tell me is they are moving ppl in and this has been going on since march of "07" so they are not idiots the system is just messed up they should atleast have something online that helps so ppl don't call them as much.

hotgirl, that sounds terrible, but i appreciate your sharing.

unfortunately, this forum isn't designed to help people with section 8 questions, although i guess that we tell people who to contact is helpful in itself.

i would have thought the process would be a little bit friendlier for you.

tiffany, i am very sorry to hear of your situation. i honestly don't have any experience in dealing with section 8 or any other housing-type programs. i know that bureaucracy certainly gets in the way of progress but i also feel quite certain that there are caring, loving people who work in those sorts of jobs; they'd love to be able to put you in a home of your own.
i pray you'll find someone with a warm heart who can assist you. it is a very difficult time to be in your situation, and that's one of the problems that those who can help you also face. there are fewer programs, there is less money available, and there are so very many people in serious need of assistance. i'm not making excuses, i don't think, but i see homelessness as an extremely difficult problem to overcome virtually everywhere.
i hope an angel will appear out of nowhere for you - this week.

Hi Angela and Carl,

You need to get in touch with your local housing authority. They are the ones who can provide you with the information regarding your section 8 application status. Have you contacted them? What do they say?

All you have to do is go to google and type in LACDC-housing authority(HA) it'll take you to the home page. then look in the program box located on the left side of the screen and you should see something like this...........apply/update/check status.....place the arow there and you will see the same thing pop up saying.....apply/update/check status click on that....it will then ask you to enter a prospect number but if you dont have one its ok just enter your social security number and your date of birth. :D [/b]

Hi Monica,

You need to get in touch with the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) department in your city. You can also contact the office from where you applied for section 8 program. It is difficult to know the exact status of your application from any other source. However, even if you qualify for section 8, it does not mean you will be accepted at any particular building. It will entirely depend on the owner of that particular property.

i wonder if section 8 people in municipalities get inquiries about people's mortgage application status.

i am wondering, too, if people walk into emergency rooms at hospitals and ask the receptionist if they can visit with their prisoners; or if they walk into police stations to ask to see the doctor.

it's kinda the same as this, isn't it?

red, you ought to go to your local housing office to ask that question. are you asking for yourself or for someone else?

please note that this site is called "MortgageFit." it is intended to be a community for people who are or desire to be homeowners (or used to be), with professionals in the real estate field also playing a part. it is not intended to be a forum for renters, though those questions come up all the time, and are treated with the proper respect.

honestly, you'll find that the most efficient way to get an answer to your question is to go to the municipality in which you live and ask the housing department.

when someone asks for help on this site, it becomes my business because i am striving to help. however, when the question that comes in is completely out of the scope of this site, it needs to be said. someone looking for section 8 information for a specific situation is not going to get the help needed here. we don't have access to such information, and the person asking needs to go to the local community where the section 8 request was made to begin with.

your post here, guest, is not helpful. it is imperative that someone seeking section 8 assistance know where to go for information. if a person filed in a particular place, that's the place to go for information. i recognize that there are those who lack sophistication and are simply searching for help, but this is not the place where such help can be found. it's that simple.

the "way" i am is to try to help those who need it wherever i can. if you have issues with my stance, there's nothing i can do about it. c'est la guerre.

If you were in a situation that we are in Mr. Loan Consultant you wouldnt be so crappy to everyone on here that was asking about there section 8 apps. you are very rude & if you dont want people commenting & asking questions DONT HAVE A MESSAGE BOX ON YOUR SITE! gosh what jerks we have in the world today! & also maybe if you just IGNORED the ones that were asking instead of having a crappy remark to everything then it wouldnt bother you so much! UGGHH!

well, you didn't annoy or discourage me, so i suppose that will make you even more angry, kaleigh.

it's painfully obvious that a person seeking help with a section 8 situation needs to go to the locale where the application was filed. that's all i've been trying to say here - how that comes over as "rude" or "crappy" is beyond me.

but we all have our little issues, don't we?
