Housing Choice Voucher closed
Housing Choice Voucher is closed and Memphis Housing Authority not accepting applications
Posted on 06/03/2019
A false post to Facebook was made over the weekend indicating Memphis Housing Authority was accepting housing choice voucher (aka section 8) applications through the HUD’s Family Reunification Program (FUP) from the public. The Family reunification Program is an exclusive partnership between MHA, the Tennessee Department of Children’s Services (DCS) Shelby County Region and the Community Alliance for the Homeless to administer FUP vouchers to keep child welfare involved families safely together, prevent and reduce homelessness and to provide safe, stable housing for families and youth. MHA only accepts referrals for FUP vouchers from DCS.

The waiting list for the Housing Choice Voucher program, (aka Section 8) is closed and is not scheduled to reopen any time soon. Upon which time the waiting list opens, the public will be notified through all media channels and provided instructions on how to apply. For information regarding affordable housing options, please visit

For more information, contact Cheiktha Dowers, Housing Choice Voucher Program Director at or at 901-544-1347 or Keisha Walker, MHA Director of Community Engagement at or at 901-544-6404/901-216-7591.
