NORWALK (CBSLA.com) — Thousands of people lined up Monday morning for the chance to apply for low-cost, government-subsidized housing in the city of Norwalk.
Officials with the City of Norwalk Housing Authority began handing out applications at 8 a.m. at the Norwalk Arts and Sports Complex at 13200 Clarkdale Avenue.
Roughly 3,000 applications for the Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program waiting list were scheduled to be distributed through Sept. 24 or until all applications were handed out, city officials said.
By just past 7 a.m., a line of people could be seen going all around what appeared to be nearly a city block, according to aerial reports.
