More than 400 people showed up to apply for the last round of Section 8 housing.

As in years past, people waited in long lines in July to apply for 400 available Section 8 housing spots. Those  lines have some asking whether there is a better process to help low-income families apply for affordable housing.

This week on Noon Edition, administrators at the Bloomington Housing Authority and Habitat for Humanity of Monroe County will discuss housing in Bloomington and how their organizations are dealing with the increasing number of people coming into Monroe County to access social services.

Join us Friday at 12 p.m. for our conversation with school administrators and parents. You can visit this site to be part of our live chat, follow us on Twitter @NoonEdition, or join us on the air by calling in at 812-855-0811 or 1-877-285-WFIU.
