Section 8 Rental Assistance - Wait list open for applications.

To the Milwaukee Mental Health Task Force:

Dear DHHS partners,
We are writing today with some exciting news for Milwaukee County residents!

For the first time in 15 years, Milwaukee County Housing Division will open its wait list and accept applications for Section 8 Rent Assistance.

Section 8 is federally funded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). This program is designed to help low income families and individuals with rent assistance for decent, safe and sanitary housing provided by private owners and rental agents.

IMPORTANT: Residents should know their applications will be placed into a lottery system.

Those interested in applying do NOT need to arrive earlier than registration times. Registrants will be entered into a lottery. They can apply ANY date at ANY time and have the same chances of receiving the benefit. Applications will be received at the following locations (applications will not be accepted at the Walnut Street location):

July 12: 1 - 7 p.m. | July 13: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. | July 14: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
NORTHSIDE - MLK Jr. Rec Center, 1531 W Vliet St.
EAST SIDE - Gordon Park Pavilion, 2828 N Humboldt Blvd.
SOUTHSIDE - McCarty Park Pavilion, 2567 S 79th St.

We are grateful for your partnership in sharing the word about this vital service to keep our residents housed. If you have any questions about the program, application eligibility or upcoming application events, please visit us online or contact Dena Hunt at 414–278–4908.

Thank you,

James Mathy Dena Hunt
Administrator Program Manager
