Housing Choice Voucher (formerly known as Section 8) Waiting List is CLOSED.  Please click on the Applications tab on the left for more information.

Housing Choice Voucher Program Overview

The Hammond Housing Authority's Housing Choice Voucher Program (formerly known as Section 8) administers 816 vouchers in the Hammond area.

In September 2009, and October 2011, the application process was opened.  Because of the need to assist low-income families, the wait can be lengthy before eligible families are selected from the waiting list.  All families selected from the waiting list must be income eligible.  All family members 18 years of age and older must pass a criminal background check.  Other screening criteria may also apply.

If you need additional information, please contact the Housing Choice Voucher Department at the number provided below.


Incoming Portability

Hammond Housing Authority is billing, not absorbing, incoming portable vouchers.  (All incoming portable clients must find a unit in the City of Hammond only.)

Outgoing Portability

Current participants may transfer to another Housing Authority in the United States after one (1) year of assistance.  Applicants, who lived in Hammond at the time of their application, may transfer to another Housing Authority in the United States when they initially receive their voucher.

For current participants and applicants: 

Changes must be reported IN WRITING within ten (10) days of the change.  Changes will not be accepted via fax or e-mail!
