Waiting List Selection Procedure
Please be mindful that there are over 25,000 applicants on the waiting list. Therefore, it may be some time before your name reaches the top of a waiting list.
When your name reaches the top of the waiting list NHA will notify you by first-class mail. The notice will inform the family of the following:
· Date, time and location of the scheduled application interview, including any procedures for rescheduling the interview
· Who is required to attend the interview
· Documents that must be provided at the interview to document the legal identity of household members
· Documents that must be provided at the interview to document eligibility for a preference, if applicable
· Other documents and information that should be brought to the interview.
Selection from the waiting list is based on your date and time stamp of application, lottery position, selection preferences, development choice(s) and apartment size.
Please note that any time NHA attempts to contact you by mail and you do not respond your application will be withdrawn from the Public Housing waiting list. We will send the appointment letter and any other correspondence to the address of record. Therefore, it is very important that you utilize NHA’s website should your personal information change so that up-to-date information is received as it occurs.
