Application steps

Get on the waitlist

We often have more applicants than available units, so, you’ll need to sign up for the waitlist of the property you chose. We’ll then notify you once a spot becomes available.

Waitlists are property-specific, so make sure to apply for the waitlist of the property you're interested in.

Keep your information up to date

It's important to keep your information up to date while on the affordable housing waitlist. If any changes occur, such as a change in income or family size, please update your information immediately by notifying [email protected]. This will help ensure that you remain eligible for affordable housing and that you receive housing offers that accurately reflect your current circumstances.

Background checks + orientation

After your name reaches the top of the waiting list, we will conduct a pre-qualification check to ensure that you meet the eligibility requirements for our affordable housing programs. This check typically involves verifying your income, criminal background, and rental history.

Receive a housing offer

If you're eligible and a spot opens up, we'll send you a housing offer. This offer will include information about the unit, the lease, and any other relevant details. You’ll need to submit sign and submit these documents to us.

Move in

Once you've accepted the offer, it's time to move in! Congratulations on securing affordable housing in Travis County.
