The Housing Authority of the City of El Paso (HACEP) announced that the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) waiting list is now open to area residents.
“HACEP invites all low-income families and single individuals to apply for the HCV program,” programs officials shared.
The Housing Choice Voucher program provides rental assistance to eligible families and individuals to rent units in the private sector. The program was designed to allow participants to increase their housing choice in areas of greater opportunity.
HACEP officials added that this is the first time HACEP will be accepting applications for the Housing Choice Voucher Program since July of 2020.
It will remain open daily, from 8am to 5pm through June 30,2021.
Officials will be accepting applications online, through HACEP’s website. To apply, visit the website and click on the Housing Choice Voucher Application button. An email will be required to register and submit an application.
Along with the rental assistance the HCV program provides, participants can participate in the program’s Family Self-Sufficiency program to prepare for economic self-sufficiency.
For those who may have a disability, or have a family member with a disability and require a reasonable accommodation to apply, they can contact Susana Juarez at (915) 849-3612
