In addition, to operating a Low-Income Public Housing Program, the Detroit Housing Commission also operates a Housing Choice Voucher Program (“Section 8”) through it’s Assisted Housing Department. Currently, the Detroit Housing Commission administers approximately 6000 vouchers under the Section 8 Program.

The Detroit Housing Commissions Wait Lists are currently CLOSED. The Detroit Housing Commission is not accepting applications for housing assistance at this time.
Since the demand for housing assistance often exceeds the limited resources available to HUD and the local housing agencies, long waiting periods are common. We do not anticipate re-opening any Wait Lists in the near future. DHC opens its HCV waiting list on an as needed basis.
When we do, we will place a notice on the home page of this site,, in the local newspaper, and through various media as determined necessary to reach potentially eligible households not otherwise likely to apply. The public notice will state that pre-applications for the Housing Choice Voucher Program will be accepted, how they will be accepted and the time frame that the waiting list will be open
Because of the overwhelming demand for assistance in most categories, when Detroit Housing Commission’s wait lists get low, we usually hold a lottery to select families to add to the wait list. A lottery ensures that all families who express an interest in Section 8 or Public Housing assistance are given an equal opportunity to apply for a limited number of openings. Your place on the wait list can go up or down as families' preferences change.
