Public Housing Waiting List 

The waiting list is currently closed.

How to Qualify

The Public Housing Program helps very low-income households with subsidized rental units. To qualify, annual gross household income cannot exceed: One Person Household $33,050 or Two Person Household income of $37,750.

How the Waiting List Works

The time and date of receipt of the online application has no bearing on whether an application will be selected for the waiting list. There is no need or advantage to applying immediately after the list opens.  

The HRA will conduct a lottery of all eligible applications for 250 positions on the waiting list for the Public Housing waiting list. The waiting list is open to all eligible households with one to two members.
