How to Apply?

How to apply for housing?

For the Housing Choice Voucher program, we received over 6000 applications in March of 2014 and chose 500 applicants for the current list by a random computerized lottery drawing. Due to many factors, HATC is unable to predict how long an applicant will remain on the waiting list.

Applications for each program’s waiting list are accepted only during open enrollment periods. Open enrollment periods are subject to available funds; therefore once the enrollment periods are open, announcements will be published in local area newspapers as well as publicized through area social service agencies.

Check our website periodically to check when we will be accepting applications during our open enrollment periods. Currently, waiting lists for our HUD assisted programs are closed; therefore neither Public Housing or Housing Choice Voucher programs are accepting applications at this time. During open enrollment we will change our List Status below from 'Closed' to 'Open'.
