The Hernando County Housing Authority Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) Waitlist Lottery is currently open. To apply online you will need to create an account. This application does not guarantee placement on the waitlist. The final Waitlist will be determined using a random lottery. Applicants not selected in this lottery will not move forward in the process. Waitlist lottery results are final and are not subject to appeal.  Households not selected for this waitlist may reapply when the waitlist application period reopens.  Applications chosen during the lottery will be randomly assigned applicant ID numbers and ranked using the following preferences:

1. Hernando County, Florida residence or employment

2. Elderly 

3. Veteran

4. Disabled households

The Hernando County Housing Authority  has established these local preferences and applicants will be required to provide documentation for any preferences applied to your household when your name is reached.

If you move after submitting the preliminary application, it is your responsibility to submit a Waitlist Update Form at our office located at 621 W. Jefferson Street, Brooksville, FL 34601. 

If we are unable to contact you at the address provided, you will be removed from the Waiting List.

If you are one of the 500 selected by the lottery to be placed on the waiting list, you will receive a letter in the mail saying you were selected and what number you are on the waiting list within 4-6 weeks.
