HCV LOTTERY UPDATE: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW IF YOU APPLIED
Philadelphia, PA. (March 2, 2023) – More than 37,000 individuals applied during PHA’s recent Housing Choice Voucher Lottery to establish a waitlist of 10,000 applicants.
After the lottery, a computer randomly assigned a number to each applicant selected for the HCV Waitlist and they were sent a letter notifying their place on the waitlist between between one and 10,000. If you were not selected you will also receive a letter. Feel free to check your status on-line. In spring of 2023, PHA will begin contacting applicants with the lowest numbers for interviews to determine if they are eligible for admission into the Housing Choice Voucher Program. Applicants assigned high numbers may have to wait as long as five years to be contacted and interviewed.
The determination is final, and there is no way to appeal. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact (215) 684-4300 from 9 am to 5 pm Mondays-Friday Check your status on the HCV waitlist lottery anytime by signing into their PHA account at:
