About Our Waiting Lists
Once an application is received, we will enter it into the system and place you on the waiting list for the site(s)/program you selected—you will be contacted that we have received the application. Your position on the waiting list has certain factors considered, including time/date of application and preference points—this is a fluid list and position depends on many factors and can change.
When you are near the top of the list, your application will be pulled and you will be contacted to complete the eligibility and suitability screening process which may include having to complete and update packet or full application. If eligibility requirements are passed, you will be provided with “next steps.” If eligibility requirements are not passed, you will be provided a reason and opportunity to discuss—if this happens, please pay attention to the letter and avail yourself of the opportunity to discuss.
Housing Choice Voucher Disclaimer
If you have applied for a Housing Choice Voucher and you live outside of Ohio County, you must utilize that voucher within Ohio County for at least one year before you are eligible to port that voucher to another county.

That form is specifically for inquiries about housing, applications and/or complaints. You can also call the main office number at (304) 242-4447 and speak with someone who will direct you to the proper extension.
