Ive tried to figure this out and why some ppl seem to get gibs housing super fast and others linger for years. From what I understand it’s two things HUD (which will subsidize your rent at any place the landlord accepts HUD tenants) and Section 8, the housing projects.Is there anyplace in the US that the waiting list for public housing isn't years-long, though? Especially now that China and the Dems crashed our economy putting millions out of work.
The waiting lists are long for both but if you don’t mind living in the worst scum fuck project apartments you don’t have to wait that long in Section 8 programs in many cities. (You get bumped in line if you are pregnant, have kids, disabled, etc..)
If you are ok living in places with lots of cockroaches, filth and drive-bys you can get into one without too much of a wait. But if you actually want something half-way decent not in the 8th circle of ghetto hell then the wait is long. People already in the shittiest places might have an advantage when it comes to getting a spot in a better location/building. Not quite sure how that works. But basically the waiting lists are long for non-ghetto hell locations in cities. If you are ok living in the worst buildings in the poorest neighborhoods then you can get in a lot faster.
