How To Get Section 8 Immediately By Using This Relatively Unknown Emergency Housing Tip


In this resource guide, you will learn how to get Section 8 housing as fast as possible.

If you are finding yourself struggling to afford rent and need emergency housing assistance, you may be wondering “how to get section 8 immediately”? The process of getting Section 8 fast will take some work on your part, but if you are persistent, flexible about location, and follow the instructions in this article you too can get housing very quickly.

The strategy that you will learn in this resource guide may not be for everyone, but if your situation allows you to follow this plan you will find an open housing waitlist.

Keep reading there is a lot to discuss.

Editor’s Note: The Section 8 program is also referred to as the Housing Choice Voucher Program. Just note that these two public housing terms are interchangable.

How To Get A Section 8 Voucher Immediately

You need to apply for Section 8 in cities that have low populations if you want to get Section 8 housing fast. This means you will have to be willing to move out of your current city (if it is a population of 100,000 or more) in order to get Section 8 housing immediately.

Editor’s Note: If you are unable to move from your current city, this strategy will not work for you. That being said, later in this article, I will provide you with another option for getting housing quickly in your current city. Even if you stay in a city with over 100,000 residents the tip that I will share later in this article can potentially help you get housing assistance.

how section 8 works

Did You Know You CAN Apply For Housing In Another City?

You may not know this but you can apply for housing in any city, town, county, or state in the U.S. No matter where you are reading this from you can apply for Section 8 with any public housing authority in the U.S. You can apply for housing here in Houston where I am located if you like. Also, I can apply for housing in your city.

While you can apply for housing in other areas you should know that local residents will be a higher priority to get housing. That being said applying for housing in a less populated city (even with locals being a higher priority) will get you housing faster than applying for Section 8 in your own city of over 100,000 people.

Why You Get Section 8 Faster By Applying In Less Populated Cities

You can get Section 8 immediately by applying in smaller cities or towns because there are fewer people on the waitlist.

If there is even a waitlist.

Here is a quick story…

Houston is a major city with a housing waitlist of at least 3 years. One client I worked with wanted housing in Houston and I told her about the long waitlist in Houston. I also mentioned that she could apply for housing in any city she wanted. Long story short, she ended up applying for housing in Bastrop, TX (about 33 miles east of Austin, TX) and they had an immediate opening for housing. You can read more about how this client got housing in less than 30 days here.

To wrap up this point, you want to apply for housing in less populated cities because there are fewer people on the waitlist. This means you would wait less time to qualify for Section 8.

Think of the lines that you see at Walmart. Do you choose to wait in a long line or do you look for a cashier with fewer people waiting in line? It’s the same process when deciding which public housing authority you should apply for Section 8 with.

Editor’s Note: If you need more information on Section 8, you can read our guide titled How To Apply For Section 8. It explains the process, qualifications, and more.

How To Sign Up For Section 8

You can apply for a Section 8 housing voucher by contacting a public housing agency. These are agencies that manage housing programs in specific cities.

When you contact the housing authority, they will explain how to apply for Section 8. This may require you to come into the office, complete a paper application or apply online. Once you have completed and turned in your application, the agency will place you on a waiting list if they do not have an immediate Section 8 voucher for you.

Finding A Housing Authority To Apply For Section 8

To find a Section 8 housing authority you can visit the HUD website. They will offer a page that looks similar to the one below where you can select your state and you will receive a PDF listing of every housing authority in your state.

How to Get Low Income Housing Fast: One Tip To Get You Housing In Less 30 Days In this resource guide, you will learn how to get low income housing in the fastest amount of time possible. It's no secret that finding low income housing can be a challenge. In many areas, the waiting list for public housing is years long. However, there are a few ways to get around this. In this guide, we will give you one tip that can help you get low income housing benefits in under 30 days! So whether you are facing eviction or just need a more affordable place to live, follow this tip and you could be on your way to receiving the assistance you need. That ONE TIP Is...Apply For Housing In Less Populated Cities Many people on housing waitlists may not know this, but you can apply for public housing or Section 8 in any city, county, or state that you wish. If you live in Texas, you can apply for housing in Florida and vice versa. HUD actually allows you to apply for housing in another state, but again, not many people are aware of this "housing lifehack". The reason this information is important is that if you live in a large city as I do in Houston, your housing waitlist will be extremely long. Here in southeast Texas, the population is 6 million and the wait times for housing in Houston reflect that. Anyone applying for housing here may be on the waitlist for at least 3 years! If you want to get housing benefits fast...possibly in less than 30 days you need to apply for housing in less populated cities. These cities will likely have waitlists that are much shorter than those in major cities. Bastrop TX Waitlist vs Houston TX Waitlist (Personal Story) A few years ago a retired lady in her 60s was interested in applying for housing in Houston. I explain that she would likely wait for years for her name to come upon a housing waitlist. I then informed her of the option she had to apply for housing in any city or county in Texas as well as the rest of the U.S. While Houston, was her first preference, she grew up near the town of Bastrop, TX. This is a city of 9,653 residents and it is located about 30 miles east of Austin, TX. When we called the Bastrop Housing Authority, a lady at the housing office informed us that their public housing waitlist was currently open and she had a unit that she could place the client in as soon as she completed the housing application! While this was two years ago and housing waitlists do open and close on a regular basis, the fact remains that if you call housing authorities in cities with smaller populations, there is a better chance that you will get housing faster. The one thing that you should know about applying for housing in a jurisdiction outside of the one you currently live in is, local residents always get first priority on housing waitlists. That being said you will still likely get housing faster if you apply in cities with fewer people on the housing waiting list. How To Find Cities With Small Populations To Apply For Housing If you have cities in mind that you would not mind applying for housing in, then you can Google search those housing authorities and call them to learn about an open waitlist. Should you need help finding cities with smaller populations, you can use the table below. This is a table of 1000 cities in the U.S that are listed according to size. Once you find a city that you are interested in you can call the housing authority in that city to learn about low income housing options. Another way to get in touch with housing authorities is to call the PIH Customer service phone number at 800.955.2232. They can answer any questions you have about public housing or Section 8 waitlists in the U.S. You can also find listings of housing authorities in each state by visiting the Public Housing Agency webpage. Here you will find a dropdown and map that will provide you with a list of every housing authority of the state of your choosing. If you simply cannot move to another city, even if you were awarded housing the next section will provide you with a potential way to get housing fast in your current city. How To Get Low Income Housing Fast In Your Own City Residents at homeless shelters can potentially get housing fast because they often times are higher priorities for local housing programs. Homeless shelters have connections to housing programs like that of Rapid Rehousing. Programs like this help low income families to get placement in an apartment as well as housing assistance like: Up to 12 months of rent paid Move-in assistance Help to get free furniture Case management And more... Each homeless shelter in each state has its own long-term housing programs. One thing that remains the same with each, is that families who are in homeless shelters, working with case managers, and enrolled in shelter programs will always be first priority. What this means is you won't be able to visit a shelter for the sole purpose of moving up a low income housing program. You need to have a connection with someone at the shelter. 7 Places To Find Low Income Housing With No Waiting List You can find 7 additional ways to get low income housing in this article we wrote. It talks about public housing, Section 8 programs, and websites that you can use to find open housing waitlists in every state. Conclusion To get low income housing as fast as possible, you will need to open your search for housing up to cities outside of the one you are currently living in. This is especially true if the population is greater than 100,000 people. Cities that are this big will have longer waitlists. Use the table of cities according to the population to find cities that have 80,000 or fewer residents. These are good starting points if you want to get housing in less than 30 days. If you cannot move to another city due to work or family obligations, then your best bet is to consider working with a homeless shelter to get connected to a long-term housing program like Rapid Rehousing. Programs like this can place you in an apartment, pay for up to 12 months of rent, pay for moving costs, offer case management, and more.

As I mentioned earlier to get Section 8 fast using this strategy, you need to have the capacity to move. Moving isn’t an option for some due to employment or family obligations. If you cannot move but still need emergency housing options in your current city, the next section will provide you with an option.

Find A Rapid Rehousing Program To Get Emergency Housing In Your City

Rapid Rehousing is a program that helps homeless families to connect to long-term housing. The housing services offered by Rapid Rehousing can include:

  • Rent paid for up to 12 months
  • Help with the cost of moving
  • Case management to ensure you continue to live a self-sufficient life
  • And more…

Homeless shelters have direct connections to this housing program, therefore for you to get access, you would need to check into a homeless shelter. It’s not likely that a homeless shelter would enroll a non-resident into Rapid Rehousing, but you are certainly welcome to try!

Ideally, the people who are connected to Rapid Rehousing are individuals who:

  • Live at a homeless shelter
  • Are working with a case manager
  • Involved in shelter programs

If you are interested in finding homeless shelters in your area that offer the Rapid Rehousing program, you can visit the Homeless Shelters Directory website to find locations near you.

7 Places To Find Low Income Housing With No Waiting List

We’ve put up a post on how to get low-income housing that has 7 more ideas. It discusses government housing, Section 8 programs, the housing choice voucher program, and websites where you can look for open waiting lists in every state.

Conclusion

To get Section 8 immediately, you will need to have the ability to move to a less populated city. If you live in a major city like Houston, New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, etc, chances are that your local housing authority will have a housing waitlist that is very long.

You can find shorter Section 8 waitlists (sometimes open housing waitlists) by applying for housing benefits in less populated cities and counties. In order to get a Section 8 voucher fast, consider applying in cities with less than 80,000 people. You can find a table in this article to sort through American cities and their populations.

If packing up and moving to a different city is not an option, then you can try contacting homeless shelters near you to see if they have a program called Rapid Rehousing. This program helps low-income and homeless families with resources like up to 12 months of rent, moving costs, and case management to ensure you can sustain self-sufficiency.

Should you have questions about housing programs near you, leave a comment below or contact the PIH Customer service phone number at 800.955.2232. They can answer any questions you have about public housing or the housing choice voucher program waitlists in the United States.
