How Will I Know When I Am Selected from the Waiting List?

The Office of Public Housing will notify the family by mail when it is selected from the waiting list. The notice will include the next steps the family must follow to continue the application process. The LHA has a responsibility to ensure the safety of our residents. Among the next steps is the LHA’s determination that a family will be a suitable resident.  The LHA will review any criminal activity that is a threat to the health, safety or property of others. All applicants 17 years of age or older on the application must consent to a criminal background check to further LHA’s commitment to resident health, safety, and security. In addition, proof of citizenship or legal resident status will be required.
