GRAYSON COUNTY -- For the first time in nearly two years, applications are being accepted for section 8 housing in Grayson County.

The Grayson County Housing Authority said about 50 people turned in applications before noon Monday.

The last time the list was open was September 2012.

"We took applications about two years ago and it has taken us this long to work through a little over 200," GCHA executive director Hazel Camp said.

Section 8 provides rental assistance for low-income families.

Applicants will be placed on a wait list.

"It's not instant approval," Camp said. "It's not anything that they're going to hear from today. It's just taking their application to actually put them on a list to get ready for us to process."

Applications will only be accepted between 9-11am and 1-3pm on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.

Camp says you must have birth certificates and social security cards for all members of the family that will live in the unit. You must also have proof of all income and a picture ID for all members that are 18 or older. 

The Grayson County Housing Authority is located at 1708 W. Houston St., Sherman, TX 75090.

Applications can also be printed online here.
