The first and most straightforward way to check your Section 8 voucher application status is to contact your local housing authority. They will be able to provide you with the most up-to-date information on your application status. You can find the contact information for your local housing authority on the HUD website.

Check Online

Many housing authorities now offer online portals where you can check your Section 8 voucher application status.

We want to be able to see our Housing Section 8 Number, not go in circles, Respectfully

I am No. 28 but now can’t find where I was when HUD told me that

15 Years on Section 8 in CA

In CA, you call a number and enter your Social Security Number and waa Laa, you are given your Section 8 Number and about how long that means; mine went from 3,000+ to hundreds in such a short time I did a double-take, but when I called back to make sure it remained, thereafter a lady verified it was true as I started talking to her and then she asked for my ss# and I said that’s alright, thank you and got off the phone

The day I moved out to get my Authored Book out (on Third Re-Print in 2023 from June 2000 and Family now Reviewing), and to save for deposits and things I’d need, that SAME day as I thereafter left my storage with my cel phone, car, the beach (avid 7 mile runner), and er Friend, a letter that my number had come up was sitting THERE in my P.O. Box : )
