If you submitted your online application to our recent Section 8 HCV & PBV waiting list lottery opening (between 8 AM on Thursday, August 24th, and 5 PM on Monday, August 28th), and you received a confirmation number, your application was successfully submitted and will be a part of the lottery. Please do not call or email us to ask for an update on your status - when this information is available, we will post instructions on our website here, on the front page, and on the applicant information page for how to check your lottery application status.

DCHA is currently closed to the public until further notice.  DCHA is only able to provide assistance to and answer questions from our current clients at this time. Current participants and applicants can mail, fax, or email questions, documentation, or reports of change to us.

Please note that we do not offer emergency housing or emergency rental assistance, advice for landlord-tenant disputes or questions about rental law, or help in finding and applying for housing. 

Thank you for reaching out! If you do not see a response within 3 to 5 business days, please check your spam/junk folder for an email from an @dcha.net domain.
