KINGSTON – RUPCO, as local administrator for State Homes and Community Renewal, will extend the  application window for the Ulster County Housing Choice Voucher Waiting List, also known as Section 8 to November 30. The Ulster County HCV Waiting List opened on October 15 and will now close on 4:30 pm, November 30, 2021.

All eligible applications received by November 15 – or postmarked for November 15 – will be accepted and entered into a lottery to determine their position on the waiting list. Any applications received after that and until November 30, 2021 will be entered onto the waiting list in the order they were received.

Interested applicants can download an application online from www.rupco.org or pick up a hard copy at RUPCO’s office; 289 Fair Street, Kingston. All applications must be completed, signed, and mailed or dropped off at the mailbox in the lobby of 289 Fair St. No faxed or e-mailed applications will be accepted.

The Housing Choice Voucher Program provides rental assistance for families with low or modest incomes to enable them to choose and lease affordable, privately owned rental housing. RUPCO administers the HCV program in Ulster and Greene Counties. The last time the Housing Choice Voucher Wait List was open in Ulster County was in 2019, and RUPCO has reopened the waiting list as the existing waiting list is nearing exhaustion.
