Welcome to the Melvindale Housing Commission's Housing Choice Voucher waiting list application.
This web-based process will assist you in applying for a place on the waiting list for the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program. You may apply at any time during the online registration’s open enrollment period (see “Registration Status” box to the right for this period).
Upon completion of registration, you should write down the tracking number. After the lottery, applicants can return to this page to check whether they were selected by clicking the “Search Existing Record” button to the right and entering the tracking number. The tracking number only confirms your application has been successfully completed. It does NOT mean you have been placed on the waiting list. Soon after the closing of the enrollment period, the MHC will conduct a random lottery of all eligible applications and place selected applicants on the MHC Housing Choice Voucher waiting list.
To successfully apply, you will need to provide the Melvindale Housing Commission with the following information:
First and last names of all members of your household.
Social security numbers of all members of your household.
Birth dates of all members of your household.
The total gross annual income of your household. This includes Supplemental Security Income (SSI), wages, Social Security, DHS, General Assistance, child support, and any other income received.
A valid address to which the staff can send correspondence.
A valid phone number at which you can be contacted.
Provide accurate information. Submission of false information or misrepresentation will result in disqualification from the lottery and may result in loss of eligibility to participate in the Housing Choice Voucher Program.
Only one application per household. Submission of multiple applications will result in disqualification from the lottery.
