Section 8 Waiting List Lottery
The McHenry County Housing Authority has concluded our lottery process for applicants applying for Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) assistance. All applicants that were included in the final lottery selection have been added to the regular Section 8 waiting list. You can now use the waiting list look-up tool to find your final position on the Section 8 waiting list.
All applicants must keep a current address on file. MCHA will occassionally mail documents or letters to a family that require their response in order to remain on the waiting list. If you fail to respond to a MCHA mailing, you will be removed from the waiting list. Families are now able to edit their contact information online by using our Edit Contact Information tool. After entering your full name and social security number, you will be able to edit your email, phone number, and address. Any other changes, such as a name change or adding/removing family members from your pre-application, must still be done in writing by completing a Change of Information form.
