Requirements and Process

All applications for the Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher Programs are accepted through our online pre-application system. Registering and submitting the pre-application is the first step toward receiving subsidized housing assistance.
Applicants will need to include the following information in their pre-application:

  1. Name
  2. Mailing address
  3. Dates of birth and social security numbers for each family member on the lease
  4. Gross annual income
  5. Driver’s license or State ID numbers for all family members

Once all of the fields are filled out, click the “Submit Application” tab to automatically upload your application to the waitlist. Your place on the waitlist is based on the date and time of the submission of this pre-application. If any required fields are omitted or incorrectly filled out, a red message will appear informing applicants where the error has occurred. Applicants should print or record the confirmation number for their records.

Once the pre-application form is submitted, applicants will eventually receive an appointment with an admissions counselor to determine your eligibility based on your income level and other considerations.  Due to high demand and fluctuating levels of federal funding, it typically takes two to four years to receive approval to enter our public housing communities or the HCV Program.
