Local housing voucher wait list opens as changes come to properties

The Housing Authority of Grays Harbor County have announced that they will open their Section 8 – Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) wait list this month for those who would like to be placed in the queue.

On Monday, October 30 the list will open, and will remain open until further notice.

Housing Authority Executive Director Jerry Raines told KXRO that with a change in the way that the Housing Authority runs, they will be changing from a Public Housing program into a Section 8 program. They say that this change will allow them more consistent funding to operate.

 

Starting soon, they will be doing upgrades across the county on their housing.

 

The updates will include replacing and upgrading infrastructure in pipes, roofs, and seals throughout the buildings.

The updates will occur over the next 22 months as they renovate 10 low-income and Section 8 properties throughout Grays Harbor.

During the renovations, residents will need to be moved into other apartments or spaces briefly.

A meeting has been scheduled for October 17 at the Log Pavilion for the public to learn more about the project, but also as a opportunity for “subcontractors and trades people” interested in being a part of the renovation to learn more.
