The period to apply for the Housing Choice Voucher waitlist for the Municipality of Anchorage, Girdwood, Eagle River, Eklutna and communities in between opens soon!

Housing Choice Vouchers help low-income households, older Alaskans, and individuals with disabilities afford safe housing. Housing Choice Vouchers allow an eligible household to select a unit in the private market to rent, and AHFC pays a portion of the household’s rent directly to the landlord. Because housing assistance is provided on behalf of the family or individual, participants are able to find their own housing, including single-family homes, townhouses, and apartments — including housing suitable for larger households.

The application period opens on Saturday, April 1, 2023 and closes on Sunday, April 30, 2023, at 11:59 p.m. Alaska Time.

One-on-one application assistance and translation services will be available. Every applicant has an equal opportunity to be ranked at the top of the list whether you apply on the first day or the last day of the month.
