What Is My Status on the Waiting List?

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) requires the LHA to place all families that apply for assistance on a waiting list. When a unit becomes available, the Lowell Housing Authority selects families from the waiting list in accordance with HUD requirements and LHA policies.  Your position on the waiting list and the speed for which you will be housed is determined by a number of factors including vacant unit availability, reasonable accommodations identified in your application, and your eligible preferences.

Once selected for a spot on the Lowell Housing Authority’s waiting list, you may check your spot on the list at any time by logging in to the Lowell Housing Authority’s application portal called MyHousing. If you have already completed an application online, you may register for an account to view your application status, make changes to your application, and contact our public housing office. If you submitted a paper application previously, you may still register for an account.  To register, you will be asked to verify your date of birth and entity id or confirmation number. If you require additional assistance, please contact Andrew Rocha at [email protected] or by phone at 978-364-5311.
