In November 2020, the Jersey City Housing Authority opened the waiting lists for Section 8 Project Based Sites and the 811 Mainstream Program via an online application. A randomized, computer-generated lottery selection process was conducted.  Emails will be sent to everyone who successfully submitted an application, informing them of the lottery results. 


Emails will be sent to the email addresses used to submit the online application.  If you applied and do not received an email by the second week of February, please send an email to applicantselection@jcha.us.


NOTE:  Applicants placed on a waiting list(s) as a result of the lottery process will be able to access their application on MyHousing. Applicants selected for a waiting list(s) will need a confirmation number to access their accounts.
