Getting Housing Assistance From the Wilmington Housing Authority on Your Own 

If you want to try to get Section 8 housing or housing assistance on your own, you can certainly give it a go. It's important to understand that the application process can be long and taxing, and failure to fill out forms correctly can result in significant delays. To apply for housing assistance in Wilmington, follow these steps:

  1. Visit the Wilmington Housing Authority website to see if the waitlist is open.
  2. If so, fill out the online application, or obtain a copy of the application in person at the Wilmington Public Housing Authority at 1524 S. 16th Street, Wilmington, North Carolina 28401.
  3. Fill out the form accurately and completely.
  4. Follow the prompts to submit your application to the correct place.
  5. Wait to hear back about whether your application was accepted or denied.

It can take several weeks or months to hear back about your application, and you may only be placed on a waitlist that can also last years before you can move into Section 8 housing. If you face homelessness or an upcoming eviction, the Wilmington Housing Authority recommends you reach out to The Good Shepherd or The Salvation Army for more prompt housing assistance.
