Housing waiting list: Fail!

Judging by the reports Brandt Williams encountered yesterday in the long line to apply for the waiting list for Section 8 housing in Minneapolis, another system for taking applications should be considered when the waiting list opens up again in five years or so.

The online method isn’t working.

An MPR listener stayed up until the early morning hours today hoping that would work. It didn’t:


Today (June 12)about 12:30pm I tried to complete an online application. The website ran at a snail’s pace. I managed to register for the website before the applicant site crashed altogether and only displayed the message, “Service Unavailable”. Now again, 12 hours later at 12:30 am I am getting the same message.

Very disappointing.
