The 22 additional slots that were available on the South Central Community Action Program’s Section 8 wait list in Owen County were filled in a hurry today. That means SCCAP will not be taking additional Section 8 applications Friday, as previously scheduled.
People started lining up outside our Spencer office at 5:30 this morning. We opened at 8 a.m. and the 22 households were added to the wait list during the next two hours. It was the first time in about 2-1/2 years that SCCAP has opened its Section 8 wait list in Owen County.
There will be opportunities for residents in Brown and Monroe counties to get on SCCAP’s wait lists in those counties during the next two weeks. SCCAP will take applications for the Brown County wait list at our Nashville office on Sept. 23 from 1 to 4 p.m. and on Sept. 24 from 8 to noon; and for our Monroe County wait list at our Bloomington office on Sept. 30 from 8 to noon and on Oct. 1 from 1 to 4 p.m.
In each county, SCCAP will stop taking applications for the Section 8 wait list as soon as it is filled. We will take 22 applications in Brown County and 70 in Monroe County.
