Waiting List

New Castle County’s Housing Choice Voucher Waiting List is currently CLOSED.

In January 2019, five hundred applicants were selected through a random lottery for inclusion on the Waiting List for Housing Choice Vouchers. In December 2019, several thousand more households that had applied in January were brought onto the list. It is expected to take several years to find housing for everyone currently on the Waiting List. Therefore NCCHA is not able to accept any applications at this time. 

Prospective applicants should not call our office with other requests or inquiries at this time. For immediate housing assistance, please see the links at the bottom of this page. There are also links to other local Public Housing Authorities on our Voucher Portability page.
