Georgia state agency struggles to meet growing need for housing aid

A Georgia state agency received more than 177,000 applications for housing subsidies, but only 13,000 of those will actually join a waiting list that leads to aid.

The Georgia Department of Community Affairs took applications for its Housing Choice Voucher program online for four days last week, the first time people who would like to live in the 149 counties served by the program have been invited to apply since 2021.

The department is now reviewing applications to determine if they are complete and people are eligible, and removing duplicate applications, Department of Community Affairs spokesperson Kristen Moses said Tuesday.
