NECAC to close waiting list for Housing Rent-Assistance Program

Posted on Monday, December 3, 2012 at 9:38 am

The not-for-profit North East Community Action Corporation (NECAC) will close the waiting list and temporarily cease accepting applications Dec. 31 for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) funded Section 8 Housing Rent-Assistance Program in Lincoln and Warren counties.

St. Charles County is not affected.  The NECAC-operated program provides partial rent payments for low to moderate income residents.

Until Dec. 31, the names of people from Lincoln and Warren counties who sign up for Section 8 assistance will be put on the waiting list until additional or redistributed funds become available. After Dec. 31, NECAC will not accept applications until further notice.

NECAC re-opened the waiting list last April after more than a year. People with questions about the Section 8 program, or those who want their names put on the waiting list before Dec. 31, may visit or call the following NECAC County Service Centers:

Lincoln County: 11 Woodcrest Drive, Troy, at 636-528-7604.

Warren County, 120 E. Main Street, Warrenton, at 636-456-8191.
