How do I apply for Section 8 housing?
Applications are normally accepted as funding becomes available. The Housing Assistance Agency then advertises in local publications detailing how to get applications as well as the requirements for submitting an application and ultimate acceptance.

Currently, the Town of Babylon is not accepting new applications for Section 8 housing. The demand for housing is high but the supply is low for those seeking Section 8 housing. As a result, the Town is currently working from an existing list of interested tenants and applicants are selected on a first come, first serve basis. Once the existing list is exhausted, the Town will open up the Section 8 housing program to new applicants.
