Waiting List Ranking/Position List Number

Because there are so many families who need affordable rental housing, the fairest way for housing authorities to select families is through a waiting list. Applicants for Miami-Dade Public Housing and Community Development's subsidized rental housing programs are placed - using a computerized random selection system - on a ranked/position list number in the corresponding waiting list.

Waiting list ranking/position list number

A computerized random selection system, in which a computer randomly assigns waiting list rankings/position list numbers, takes place after the application period. Please note that it may take a few months after the application period is over for the ranking/position list numbers to be announced.

Once you move to the top of the waiting list, you will be mailed an appointment letter to begin the eligibility verification process. Please be sure your current mailing address is on file, so the letter is sent to the correct location.

To see your ranking/position list number, click on the link below of the corresponding waiting list (i.e., 2014 Moderate Rehabilitation, 2008 Waiting List) and search/find your web application confirmation number in the provided Adobe portable document format (PDF) file - once the PDF file is open on your computer press <Ctrl><F> to 'Find' your confirmation number.  The waiting list includes the applicant's confirmation number, Entity-ID or Client-ID and the ranking/position list number.

Important Note: Your ranking/position list number never changes.

Understanding the waiting list

Miami-Dade Public Housing and Community Development (PHCD) provides the ranking/position list number of the July 2008 Waiting List for its project-based (Public Housing and Moderate Rehabilitation), Assisted Living Facilities, and tenant-based (Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher) programs.

Each entry is organized according to the diagram below:

Last Name, first Name, Confirmation Number, Client ID, Project-based Ranking Number, Tenant-based Ranking Number

To aid in the search process and once the PDF file is open on your computer, please press <Ctrl><F> to 'Find' your confirmation number. When the search text box appears, please type your confirmation number and then click <Next>.

Note: It is most helpful if you search by the confirmation number provided at the time of application.
