How to Apply For Housing

Once you have determined the housing types and individual properties you are qualified for, follow the steps below to apply for housing at your desired location.Please keep in mind our Housing Choice Voucher waitlist is currently closed.

Search for apartments or houses that fit in your housing type, program and have an open wait list.

Visit properties and apply to those properties you are interested in, or join the wait list. You will need to bring your ID, birth certificate, Social Security card as well as information regarding any income or assets your household may have.

Once your application is near the top (or if the property does not have a wait list), the property staff will send a letter requesting all adult household members to come in for a preliminary interview.

The property will perform a rental, criminal and credit check as well as verify the information provided regarding your income and assets.

For properties that offer “Self-Sufficiency” programs, you will be asked to complete additional screening which may include writing an essay on your goals and how you would benefit from the program.

The property staff will notify you of the results and if approved your estimated rent and security deposit amount.

When a unit becomes available, the property staff will notify eligible households of the unit availability. ** Please note if the information previously provided is more than 90 days old, it will need to be verified again (and if it has changed, it may disqualify the household).

Submit a deposit.
