[ARCHIVED] Update on waiting list status for applicants for new local voucher program
The Orange County Housing Authority (OCHA) recently completed the application process for the new Local Rent Supplement Program Waiting List. During the Waiting List open period, June 17-24, 2019, the Housing Authority received more than six hundred (600) applications. Note that the County’s federal Housing Choice Voucher Waiting List is also not currently open.
A random lottery process was utilized to select two hundred (200) applicants to be placed on the OC-LRSP Waiting List. This selection was NOT based on a first-come, first served basis. Applicants who were randomly selected to be on the lottery Waiting List are called prospects. A prospect’s actual position on the Waiting List is based on the date and time of their application. Selections from the Waiting List are based on the prospect’s Waiting List position. If the prospect is selected, the Housing Authority will notify them by mail and/or email to attend an initial eligibility appointment.
Waiting List Lottery Status Letters were mailed to all applicants that received a confirmation number at the time the Waiting List application was submitted via online. Please remember your application for the Waiting List did not guarantee a spot on the Waiting List.
If you were selected for the OC-LRSP Waiting List and need to update your mailing address or phone number, you are required to update this information via the OCHA Applicant Portal. If your application was not selected in the lottery process, you do not need to update your application information.
