Application Process

The first step for those interested in affordable housing programs is to complete an online application described in detail below for an open Interest List. Once the online process is complete, and individuals have applied for our Interest List the information submitted is reviewed by staff. Selection of individuals on the Interest List is based on a number of eligibility criteria, preferences, and a lottery draw system. If selected as an applicant for a specific property or program, individuals will be automatically placed on the waitlist and notified.

Frequently, there are not sufficient units or vouchers available for the overwhelming number of individuals expressing interest. For those who are not contacted and placed on the waitlist, they remain on the Interest List until the next opportunity for housing or a final draw is completed.

The application process is described in greater detail below, and is typically grouped in two categories:

Housing Choice Voucher (formerly Section 8)

Interest list is currently
CLOSED

 

Low-Income Public Housing
or Affordable Housing
