Straight from the Eligibility Specialist at the Housing Authority of the County of Salt Lake:

Section 8
3 year waiting list
Tenant pays 30% of their monthly AGI in rent

Public Housing
They only have 12 one bedroom non-senior apartments so the wait is 4-5 years. If you're a senior, the wait is shorter.
Tenant pays 30% of their monthly AGI in rent.

Check with Salt Lake City Housing Authority too.

I do not follow you ...
Why wait until you have the funds.
With a two year wait, will you have the funds then ?
If you do not apply now, how long will the wait be when you DO have the funds ?

A little math lesson for ya. If you take the first two digits of a number, that will give you the 10 percent number. So 10 percent of 720, is 72 dollars. Times that by three, and you have your 30 percent total. Or you can always google "What is 30 percent of 720." It will give you the answer.
