Housing Choice Vouchers and Suspect Websites

Housing Choice Vouchers and Suspect Websites
At this time, Chattanooga Housing Authority (CHA) and the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) are NOT taking applications for Housing Choice Vouchers, formerly named Section 8 Vouchers.
There are websites that offer to give someone information or sign them up for a voucher.  They offer to check credit scores, sign you up for expensive games to play on your cell phone or require a payment.  These sites then offer to provide information on how to sign up for a voucher.  These websites are not affiliated with Chattanooga Housing Authority (CHA), the Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA) or the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).
Since our area housing providers are not accepting applications, these websites CANNOT help anyone get on a wait list or get a voucher.  When wait lists open, consumers are not charged a fee to apply or asked to sign up for credit checks or cell phone games.

Protect yourself! Do not provide personal information to suspect websites. 

Below are the correct web addresses for legitimate housing sites:
Chattanooga Housing Authority (CHA): www.chahousing.org
Tennessee Housing Development Agency (THDA): www.thda.org
Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD): www.hud.gov
