Application Process

There is an application process for HRA affordable rental housing:

  1. Further Screening
    Once it is determined that a household meets the basic income, status, and/or rent affordability requirements, applicants are further screened in accordance with HRA policy and federal and state fair housing laws. As part of the application process, applicants must authorize HRA to conduct thorough background checks including criminal history and sex offender record information checks, rental history, credit history, and personal references.
  2. Priorities and Preferences
    The waiting lists for properties managed by HRA without state assistance are administered on a first-come, first-served basis. No priorities or preferences are available.

Please follow the property links above for eligibility and application information for each property.
