Ohio Valley Opportunities (OVO) is excited to announce that we will be opening the Housing Choice Voucher Program Section 8 waiting list for SCOTT County ONLY from February 6-10, 2017. Section 8 provides rental assistance to very low-income individuals and families. Applications will only be available after the official opening at 9am on 2/6/17. Any applications received after 2/10/17 will not be accepted. Applicants must present a picture ID.
You may complete an application at the main office of Scott Valley Court Apartments, located at 714 Morning Glory Drive in Scottsburg, from 9am to 3pm. Applications will also be available at OVO’s Administration Office, located at 421 Walnut Street, in Madison, from 8am to 4pm.
In order to apply for Section 8, applicants must first be placed on a waiting list for a voucher. There are a very limited number of vouchers available for each county. Families should plan to be on the waiting list for 1-4 years. Assistance is awarded on a first-come-first-serve basis and by a preference system.
