- Join the waiting list
After submitting an application you can join the waiting lists for Low Income Public housing locations. Some lists are short, while others are very long.
The amount of time you will spend on a waiting list depends on the demand for housing and waiting list preferences. You may see your waitlist status at www.rockfordhousingauthority.com.
- Submit a full application when you reach the top of the waiting list
When your name comes to the top of the waiting list, the Admissions office will contact you by mail. You will be invited to a group interview, where you will meet with a staff member who will guide you through the full application process. They will collect documentation to confirm that you qualify for the Low Income Public Housing program.
- Have your application approved or denied
If you qualify, your application will be approved and you will be referred for placement in a unit in the Low Income Public Housing program. The approval is conditional until you lease a unit.
If you don’t qualify, your application will be conditionally denied. If that information is not sufficient, you may contest the denial by requesting a hearing.
