Pensacola Housing Section 8 Waiting List Is Closing

Posted on April 20, 2017 at 11:27 am by Dawn Corrigan

Please note that effective May 1, 2017, Pensacola Housing’s Section 8 Waiting List will be closing. Since our application process is conducted by phone and the Application Line is open two days each month, this means the final days to apply will be Wednesday, April 12, 2017, for general applications; and Thursday, April 13, 2017, when applications will be limited to elderly and disabled applicants only. (Elderly and disabled applicants may call on the general application day, as well.)

To be eligible to apply on Thursday, the Head of Household must either be 62 or older, or must meet the voucher program definition of a person with a disability.

You can click this link for a more complete description of our application process.

At this time, we cannot predict when the Waiting List will reopen. Pensacola Housing will publish public notices prior to reopening its Waiting List.

This change does not affect the status of those applicants who are currently active on our Waiting List. If you are an active applicant on our Waiting List, please be aware that we cannot predict when a voucher will become available for you. We are not scheduling any intake appointments or Eligibility Briefings at this time. When you near the top of the Waiting List, we will mail you an invitation to an intake appointment. Therefore, it is very important that you notify us promptly in writing if your mailing address changes. You can use this form to report mailing address changes. The completed form can be returned by mail to Pensacola Housing Division, P.O. Box 12910 Pensacola FL  32521; in person to 420 W. Chase St Pensacola FL 32502, between the hours of 7 am and 6 pm, Monday through Thursday; by email to; or by fax to (850) 595-0113 Attn: Barbara.
