waiting list preferences

OHFA offers waiting list preferences to individuals and families who are homeless or who are experiencing a mental or physical disability.


OHFA offers a preference to individuals and families who are homeless.  This includes those who have been displaced by a major disaster as declared by the President of the United States.

Victims of domestic violence, dating violence or stalking displaced as a result of fleeing violence in the home will be included in the homeless definition.


OHFA offers a local preference for a person with disabilities. This means if you or a family member meets one of the definitions, you may be eligible and will be placed on the waiting list ahead of applicants who are not disabled.

Disability is defined as an inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity by reason of any medically determinable physical or mental impairment.

Landlord Guidance

Landlords in the Housing Choice Voucher program provide families with a healthy, safe and affordable place to live. Units must pass Housing Quality Standards and be maintained as long as the owner receives housing assistance payments. The landlord is expected to provide the services agreed to as part of the lease signed with the tenant and the contract signed with OHFA.
