Housing Services Waiting List

To find your position on the Des Moines Municipal Housing Agency's waiting list for either Section 8 or Public Housing, please enter:

Your last Name, first Initial, and the last 4 digits of your social security number, then press the "Submit" button.

IMPORTANT NOTICE REGARDING THE SECTION 8 PROGRAM: The DMMHA is currently issuing vouchers ONLY as participants leave the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher Program. As a result, if you are currently on the Section 8 waiting list, the wait time may be longer than anticipated dependent upon the number of participants that leave the Program each month.

If you have further questions regarding your status on the Des Moines Municipal Housing Agency's list, please email: DMMHA. Please note that we can only answer questions about your status on the DMMHA's waiting list. If you have questions about your status on another housing agency's waiting list, you should contact that agency directly.
