HUD-Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher

Available in:


Attention Community Members: We regret to inform you that the Greater Opportunities Section 8 Housing Choice Tenant-Based Voucher Program's waitlist will be closed effective immediately and will be no longer taking applications at this time. Due to unprecedented demand and limited availability of resources, we are no longer able to accept new applications or additions to the waitlist. We understand that this decision may cause inconvenience and disappointment for those seeking housing assistance. However, it is necessary to ensure fair and efficient allocation of resources to current applicants. If you have already submitted an application, rest assured that it will still be processed according to our existing procedures. Our team will continue to work diligently to assist those on the current waitlist. When the waiting list is open, Greater Opportunities will post notice on this site. Please note that this applies ONLY to Tenant-Based Vouchers. Greater Opportunities is still accepting applications for Project Based Vouchers in Broome County. Please contact Joseph Palmere and/or Scott Derr at (607) 334-7114 with any questions and/or concerns. The goal of our HUD-Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program is to help our clients acquire appropriate and safe housing with financial assistance in their time of need so they can go on to become self-sufficient and contributing members of our Chenango County community.
