Public Housing Waiting Lists to Open on Wednesday
On Wednesday, November 1, 2017, the Columbia Housing Authority (CHA) will open all of their public housing waiting lists. The CHA is not opening the waiting list for any other program at this time.

As usual, the application process will be strictly online. Applications will be accepted on Wednesday, November 1 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. Please remember, there is no application fee to apply for housing with the Columbia Housing Authority. All applications are accepted at their website and only by using their website: www.chasc.org. Please avoid any other sites that offer services to apply for public housing for a fee. The Columbia Housing Authority is not working with any other outside entities at this time.
The Columbia Housing Authority has started accepting applications on the first business day of every month. The rest of the dates in 2017 are Wednesday, November 1 and Friday, December 1.
As you may know, in times past the Columbia Housing Authority opened different waiting lists on a varied basis. This new schedule will hopefully allow the community to feel better informed about the process and their place on the waiting list. Opportunities for the Public Housing Waiting List include:
- Senior Housing - based on age
- Standard Housing - open to anyone
- Select Housing - open to those who have been employed for at least a year and are working 30 or more hours each week.
- Eastover Housing - open to anyone wanting to live in Eastover, SC
- Cayce Housing - open to anyone wanting to live in Cayce, SC
For more information, you can contact the Columbia Housing Authority at 803-254-3886 and dial extension 360 for a recording with more details. Richland Library will continue to be a place with free access to computers and the internet and social workers to help applicants apply.
