The Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher waiting list is not only open for La Porte County residents but also for Lake, Newton, Pulaski, Jasper, and Starke County residents.

Section 8 housing choice voucher program is administered by Northwest Indiana Community Action (NWICA) on behalf of the Indiana Housing and Community Development Authority (IHCDA) funded by the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Low-income individuals and families can take advantage of the Section 8 housing choice voucher program as the program assists people with rent payments to provide affordable and safe housing to them. The waiting time can exceed 24 months in this program.

The applicants need to create a waitlist check account and have a valid email address to apply. People with disabilities looking for accommodation can request the earlier accommodation for them by reaching out to NWICA.

The applicants on the waiting list are placed in order of preference points such as by date and time of application. Some of the preference points by IHCDA include residency, working families, elderly, elderly members with a disability, youth exiting foster care, and child welfare-involved families.
