    When will the section 8 waiting list be opened? I have job. There are many people who don’t and choose not to work and are receiving section 8 which should not be fair. I am on the waiting list for public housing but i haven’t heard anything back. There are numerous vacancies in Boutte.

    On the waiting list for Public Housing. There are supposed to be doing renovations or something like that which has not started yet. So in mean time there are dozens of open apartments just sitting there empty. This is ridiculous. These people need to help instead of sitting there collecting a check and not doing anything. Also that section 8 waiting list needs to open as well.

  • Unhappy Resident

    When are the repairs going to begin. Some people are waiting on this so they can obtain housing. If this is not going to anytime soon at least open the section 8 waiting list.

    St. Charles Parish Housing Authority is horrible. There is public housing for a reason. Buildings are falling apart and i have never seen anyone working on them. Supposed to start renovations years ago. If this is not going to happen people on public housing waiting list should be offered a section 8 voucher or something. This is sad.

  • No.

    Why on earth do we even have a housing authority if yall refuse to help anyone with an emergency? You won’t open the wait list. People have been getting section 8 for YEARS. Not working, not doing ANYTHING and paying like 150 in rent, when people are actually REALLY working hard and struggling and yall literally just DO NOT CARE.

    • Roger That

      I don’t think it’s to much there doing when people try to turn sec 8 into permanent instead of getting in getting together and moving on.

  • Disgusted

    They need to shut it down. Vouchers not available public housing not available nobody being called no other options. So many people or displaced or in bad living situations they need to get out of. They people who are occupying the housing dont even look for work or work and living rent free. Its horrible. I pass through Boutte projects everyday and smmfh.
