Applicants receive a receipt letter, which states application date, bedroom size required, and expected wait on the list.
PHA investigates applicant’s past behavior to verify suitability for admission, including landlord references, court records, police records, and a home-visit.
All information in the written application relative to the family’s composition, income, and family assets is verified.
Eligible applicants are placed on an authority-wide waiting list based on unit size and date of application.
*When a unit becomes available, it is offered to the person at the top of the waiting list.*
