Today, the Columbia Housing Authority will open its waiting list for those seeking section 8 housing assistance. This is the first time they are granting new vouchers in over 3 years!
They will be granting approximately 1,100 vouchers for 2013. This is why it pays to make sure you are on the waiting list. The 200 or so people who remained on the waiting list since 2010 will automatically be assured a voucher during this open period.
So if you live in Missouri and are in need of section 8 vouchers, head on down to the J.W. “Blind” Boone Community Center, 301 N. Providence Road. They will be open every day through Friday from 8-2. Good luck!
