The Housing Choice Voucher Program Enrollment in Arlington

The Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) Program is a policy by the United States Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Department aimed at helping low-income families afford safe and sanitary housing. This housing can include apartments and townhouses as well as single-family homes, and is not limited to specific housing projects. Any owner that agrees to rent under the program receives subsidies directly from the Public Housing Agencies (PHAs), and the participating family will then pay the difference to the owner.

Arlington residents interested in participating in the HCV Program should set aside some time between August 22nd and August 28th, because the Housing Authority of the City of Arlington will only be accepting applications during this enrollment period.

The Arlington enrollment period will begin at 9 AM on Thursday, August 22nd and end at 9 AM on Wednesday, August 28th. The Housing Authority will also only be accepting applications online. Applications can be found at

Residents without regular access to a computer or to an internet connection may go to any Arlington Public Library branch and use the library’s public computers to complete the application. Computers will also be available at the Housing Authority office on 501 W. Sanford, Suite 20, Arlington, TX during the enrollment period.

The application does require applicants to have an active email account. A free account can be created through the service provider of the applicants’ choice. If you are unable to apply or need help applying due to a physical disability, you may contact the Housing Authority during the enrollment period at 817-276-6722.

In order to make sure the application process is fair to all applicants—especially those without regular computer and internet access—applications received during the enrolment will be placed on a waiting list in random order. Information about placement on the list as well as application status will be available online after the 16th of September.

Whether you’re looking to apply for the first time or you’ve already applied in the past, make sure to set aside some time during the enrollment period for this process. Applications received during the previous enrollment period will be terminated on the 19th of August, and applicants must reapply during this coming enrollment period.
