Application Process

​You would first need to complete an application to apply to our public housing program. Your name will be placed on a waiting list based on date and time of submission of the completed application.

The length of time from application to being housed is anywhere from six (6) months to over two (2) years depending on the number of individuals listed in the application.

Keep in mind that this wait period does not mean you will be offered a unit after this wait. When your name comes up to the top of the waitlist, the SPHA will call you for a phone interview. SPHA will then proceed with verifications and eligibility screening, which can last up to 6 weeks. If you are approved, the SPHA will schedule a meeting to sign the necessary forms and collect your income, asset, and household documentation. Carefully gathering all the needed documentation for this meeting will help speed up your move in process. If your application is found to be ineligible, you will receive a letter with an explanation by mail.


NOTE:  If we are unable to reach you, your name may be removed from the waiting list. You will need to re-apply and restart the application process.
