The Southeast Kansas Community Action Program (SEK-CAP) will close the waiting list for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher (HCV) program on March 17th, 2017 at 12:00pm.  Applicants should be aware that the waiting period to receive rental assistance could take twelve (12) to eighteen (18) months.  This waiting period is only an estimate and could change, depending on the federal program budget.
