  • You must be 18 or older to apply.
  • Only one pre-application will be accepted per person.
  • No income verification or other documentation is required to apply. That will be collected at time of eligibility.
  • No paper pre-applications or faxes will be accepted.
  • You do not need to apply at the MBHA – use any computer, smart phone or tablet with internet connection during the lottery period to apply!
  • Residency in Horry County is not required to apply.  (Vouchers can only be used in MBHA Service Area/Eastern Horry County, SC.)
  • There is no fee to apply –Do not be scammed by people who say you can apply for a fee!

Once you submit a pre-application for the lottery, you will immediately receive confirmation that your pre-application has been accepted.

If you are selected to be in the list of 1,000 applications, you will be notified by email or letter from the Housing Authority of Myrtle Beach.  If a person/family is not chosen in the lottery selection no notice will be sent.
