Housing Choice Voucher/Section 8 Participants Information

York Housing Authority Housing Choice Voucher/Section 8 must complete a re-certification on every family once a year before their lease anniversary date.  York Housing Authority must determine if the household is still eligible for assistance and review their rent subsidy.  A caseworker will verify the income and any changes in the household.

As of October 2017, York Housing Authority will no longer mail out the Continued Participation Form to participants.  Participants will be mailed a letter informing them it’s  time for their Annual Re-certification Packet and participants will need to print the Annual Re-certification Packet from the web site or stop at the York Housing Authority to pick up an Annual Re-certification Packet.

When you return your annual re-certification packet, you also need to return the following information with your packet:

6 months of bank statements – 8 consecutive weeks of pay stubs – child care expenses – medical expenses

Failure to provide this information can result in a delay of your annual re certification being processed. 

Participants will have 15 days to complete and return the Annual Re-certification Packet.  Should you have any questions about this procedure please call 717-845-2601 ext 1104 or 1139.
