Welcome to the Wyoming Housing Commission Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) waiting list application.
This web-based process will assist you in applying for a place on the waiting list for the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program. You may apply at any time during the online registration’s open enrollment period (see “Registration Status” box to the right for this period). Upon the closing of the enrollment period, the WHC will conduct a random lottery of all eligible applications and place selected applicants on the Wyoming Housing Commission Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) waiting list.
Upon completion of registration, you should write down the confirmation number. In case any misfortune was to occur, the only verification we will accept of your application is your confirmation number. If you cannot produce your confirmation number under these circumstances, you will have to reapply at the next opening of the waitlist application process.
Applicants can return to this page to check whether they were selected by clicking the “Search Existing Record” button to the right and entering the confirmation number.
To successfully apply, you will need to provide the Wyoming Housing Commission with the following information:
• First and last names of all members of your household
• Social security numbers and birthdates of all members of your household
• The total gross annual income of everyone in your household. This includes Supplemental Security Income (SSI), wages, Social Security, General Assistance, child support, and any other income received
• A valid address to which the WHC staff can send correspondence
• A valid phone number
In order to meet the Wyoming Housing Commission’s eligibility criteria, please note the following:
• Provide accurate information. Submission of false information or misrepresentation will result in disqualification from the lottery and may result in loss of eligibility to participate in the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Program.
• Only one application per household. Submission of multiple applications will result in disqualification from the lottery. If you have applied previously and are still on the current waitlist, any new application will be deleted.
