Frequently Asked Questions

 How can I apply for Section 8?

The Longmont Housing Authority regrets to inform you that due to funding restrictions, the waiting list to receive a Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher is currently closed. To see a list of affordable and subsidized housing in Longmont, please check out our Rental Resource List.

What are the eligibility guidelines for Section 8?

Applicants must meet citizenship or eligible immigration requirements, and household members 18 years of age or older must have a background free of recent violent or drug-related criminal activity. Household members may not owe money to another housing authority. A waiting list is maintained for the Housing Choice Voucher program. The waiting list is currently closed.


 I have a Section 8 voucher, and I’m moving to another city. Can I take my voucher with me?

Yes, that is possible. But you’ll need to contact both your current and your future public housing authority to work out the details.

 Where can I find someone who will let me use my voucher to rent a place to live?

Please check out our Rental Resource List.
