Section 8 Waiting List Pre-Application
The Battle Creek and Albion Section 8 waiting lists are currently “CLOSED” (No applications are being accepted at this time).
If you completed a pre-application, you may check your Section 8 Waiting List Status using the link to the left.
The Battle Creek Housing Commission (BCHC) is pleased to announce the opening of the Housing Choice Voucher Program Albion Waiting List, starting at 8:01 a.m. (EDT) August 27, 2018 and running through 2:59 p.m. (EDT) August 31, 2018.
Only one pre-application per household will be accepted. Once you’ve successfully completed the pre-screening application, you will receive a confirmation number. Using your social security number, you will be able to check your waiting list status after September 4, 2018 using the “Section 8 Waiting List Status” button to the left.
Once the pre-application period is over, the Housing Commission will draw 50 names by random, computerized lottery to be placed on the “Waiting List Status” changed to “Selected” and mailed further instructions. Applicants who are not placed on the waiting list will have their status changed to “Not Selected”. They will not be contacted by the Housing Commission.
Getting on the list does not guarantee that a family will receive a voucher. Applicants must meet income and eligibility requirements to get the voucher once their name comes to the top of the list. Applicants must be at least 18 years old by August 31, 2018. If an applicant owes money to the Battle Creek Housing Commission or to another Public Housing Authority, those monies MUST be paid in full before October 12, 2018 or the application will not be eligible for voucher assistance.
