How to Apply

Minneapolis Section 8 HCV Assistance

How Can I Apply To The MPHA Section 8 HCV Waiting List?

If you are interested in receiving Section 8 HCV assistance in the City of Minneapolis, you must wait until MPHA opens its Section 8 HCV Program Waiting List.

The last opening of the waiting list took place on June 12th and 13th, 2008, when applications were available both online and in paper at eight locations throughout the city of Minneapolis. As a result close to 14,000 applications were received.


Currently, we are not accepting applications for the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority’s Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program Waiting List.

Openings of the Waiting List are announced through public notification.  The public notice will state where, when, and how to apply. The notice will be published in local newspapers of general circulation and in available minority media.

Once the Waiting List is open, MPHA will accept completed applications and add them to the Waiting List as applicants. As funding becomes available, the Minneapolis Public Housing Authority’s Section 8 Programs will contact applicants from the Waiting List for possible Section 8 HCV Assistance.
