Welcome to the Rockford Housing Commission Housing Choice Voucher waiting list application.
Applicants are recommended to use a PC rather than a mobile device to enter the application. If you have to use a mobile device, please note you will likely see a "This Connection Is Not Private" message because of a SSL certificate issue. The site is secure, it simply has a SSL certificate issue which we're trying to resolve.
Users can safely proceed to entering their application. Instructions to proceed past the warning message are as follows. If using a Safari browser, click the “Show Details” at the bottom of the message and it will display a link to “Visit Website”. If using a Chrome browser, the user would click “Advanced”, and then click the “Proceed” link.
This web-based process will assist you in applying for a place on the waiting list for the Housing Choice Voucher (Section 8) program. You may apply at any time during the online registration’s open enrollment period (see “Registration Status” box to the right for this period). Upon the closing of the enrollment period, the RHC will conduct a random lottery of all eligible applications and place selected applicants on the Rockford Housing Commission Housing Choice Voucher waiting list.
Upon completion of registration, you should write down the tracking number. Applicants can return to this page to check whether they were selected by clicking the “Search Existing Record” button to the right and entering the tracking number.
To successfully apply, you will need to provide the Rockford Housing Commission with the following information:
First and last names of all members of your household
Social security numbers of all members of your household
The total gross annual income of your household. This includes Supplemental Security Income (SSI), wages, Social Security, General Assistance, child support, and any other income received
