Final application/screening process: When the Section 8 applicant’s name comes up on the Section 8 application waiting list, the family will be notified to schedule an application interview to begin the process of completing the final application. The information provided to SAHA by the applicant will then be verified for accuracy and eligibility.
Voucher: Once the screening process and Section 8 application have been completed, SAHA will present the family with a voucher, and the family can begin their search for a unit of appropriate size, determined during the eligibility process. Once the family has located a unit of their choice, they must submit all required documents for review and approval. SAHA then determines if the owner’s proposed rent is reasonable and verifies that the family’s portion of the rent does not exceed 40% of their monthly income.
Inspection: The unit will then be scheduled for a Housing Quality Standards (HQS) inspection. Upon completion and approval of these items, the family can move into their new home the date the unit passes inspection.
