The guidelines for applying and being added to our waiting list are below.  Please complete the application in blue or black ink only!

1. All applicants for head of household and co-head of household need to be at least 18 years of age or have emancipation papers filed through the court.

2. All applicants 18 years of age and older must provide a valid picture id (state issued picture id or driver's license).

3. All applicants must provide original social security cards and birth certificates for everyone in the household. Permanent resident cards can be accepted in place of a birth certificate.

6. Prior to placement on the waiting list a criminal background check, a Trans Union credit check, a sex offender check, and a landlord reference check will be conducted. When the checks are completed you will either be placed on the waiting list or you will receive a letter from the Housing Authority informing you that you were denied. The letter will provide you with information regarding an informal hearing request.
