The Arlington Housing Choice Voucher Program (AHCVP) continues to deploy a variety of vouchers types throughout the community. Waiting lists may open for one or more of housing choice voucher subsidies over an estimated course of five-years or more.
Effective July 1, 2019, the AHCVP eliminated the “first-come, first-served” application acceptance process. The AHCVP has adopted a lottery system for new applications submitted for a wait list consideration. Applications submitted will be randomly selected via the online application system for a ranked position on the Waiting List. Applicants will be contacted and informed if their application was selected or not selected through the lottery process.
Interested Arlington County residents seeking housing assistance during closed AHCVP waiting list periods may wish to apply for a housing grant or other forms of rental assistance by contacting 703-228-1300.
All applicants have been notified that they are on the program wait list. If the applicant has an address, status or household change while on the wait list, the applicant must notify the Arlington Housing Choice Voucher Program office in writing by completing the Wait List Update Form.
Applicants will be notified by mail for a final eligibility interview upon reaching the top of the wait list. Arlington Housing Choice Voucher Program follows established HUD rules for wait list management.
Although the AHCVP can’t release an applicant’s placement number on the wait list, the applicant can confirm an active wait list status by calling the Department of Human Services, Customer Service Department, at 703-228-1450.
