    There is no way to tell how long will be the wait, since that depends on many factors, including how many will leave the system in the coming years. However, most cities which have wait lists are averaging five years of wait time before a voucher becomes available.

    Sorry but where I am it varies wildly from county to county though generally the more people in an area the longer the wait. I’d expect at least a year (it could be less, but don’t plan on it) but it could easily run 5 or more. I have no idea how long it is in Richmond.

    Good news that the Housing Authority put you on the list. It will be at least 5 years. You are lucky they even took your application.

    It is about 5 years, but things have been slow, it could be up to 7.
