A record number of Houstonians applied for a chance to receive housing assistance through the city's rental voucher program.

More than 80,000 families applied to get on the wait list for Section 8 housing. Next week, the Housing Authority will choose 20,000 of the applicants through a random lottery. They will be placed on the wait list.

Each year the program selects 1,700 families from that list to be a part of the program.
