The Public Housing
Program is a federally funded program that provides decent and safe rental
housing for eligible low-income families, the elderly, and persons with
offers are made at final eligibility dependent upon availability and the
needs of the family. Upon acceptance of the unit, a lease is signed by HRHA
and the family. The responsibilities of the Housing Authority and the
family are outlined in the lease. The Public Housing resident pays a
portion of their income towards rent and utilities. Utilities are included
in the rent; however, residents are billed monthly for any amounts in excess
of the utility allowance.
Redevelopment and Housing Authority (HRHA) is responsible for the management
and operation of its four (4) local public housing communities; Lincoln
Park, Lincoln Park High-rise, North Phoebus Townhouses, and Langley Village.

What number do I call to place a work
order? You should call your rental office to
submit a work order. After business hours, the
number is answered by an answering service that will note the details of the
work order. In the event of an emergency, a technician will be dispatched as
soon as possible. Please note that there is a charge of $102.50 if a
technician is dispatched after-hours for an event that is found to not be an
Is the Public Housing waiting list open for new applications? Yes,
the Public housing waiting list is open for Langley Village (elderly
designated), North Phoebus and Lincoln Park; all bedroom sizes. However the
family does not choose which bedroom size that they will be placed on. The
applicants’ family composition determines the bedroom size that will be
assigned to the applicant.
Is the Section 8 waiting list open for new applications? No, the
waiting list is closed. No date has been set to reopen the waiting list. It
may not be for 1-3 years. When the waiting list reopens an advertisement
will appear in the local section of the Daily Press and New Journal and
Guide. This information is also available on our web site at www.hrha.org.
Will my name be placed on the Section 8 Waiting List? No, you must
complete a separate application for Section Eight and at this time the
Section Eight Waiting list is closed.
What happens when my application is turned in? You will receive a
letter in the mail once your name is placed on the waiting list. All
applications are placed on the waiting list in the order received according
to the date and time received and if a local preference can be claimed. This
question will be asked on the application.
How long will I have to wait to lease an apartment in Public Housing?
The wait will depend on the date and time your application was received,
local preference, the community, the number of applicants on the waiting
list and the amount of vacancies for a particular bedroom size. Based on the
current status of our waiting list, we estimate a 2-48 month waiting period.
What number am I on the waiting list? Sorry, we do not provide
applicants with a number. Your application is placed on the waiting list in
the order it was received. We can only verify the date and time the
application was received and whether or not you qualify for a preference
based on the information provided.
Are there any exceptions for emergencies? No, we must follow our
Admittance and Continued Occupancy Policy as well as federal regulations
when accepting applications and managing the waiting list. All applications
go through the same procedure and wait their turn on the waiting list. Other
agencies that may be of assistance are attached.
What happens if my name comes up to the top of the list and an apartment
is available? You will receive a letter to attend an interview to update
your Public Housing application. At the interview we will gather information
from you in order to determine your eligibility for our program. No
apartments are leased at this first appointment. If you are determined
eligible you will be contacted and an offer made for an apartment at the
public housing community you were interviewed for.
If I applied the same time as someone else and they received an
appointment letter already, should I also have received an appointment
letter too? Not necessarily, you may have mailed your applications at
the same time but you cannot know the order they were received. We receive
applications everyday and even though you may have mailed your application
at the same time, your family status may be different, and so may your claim
of a local preference so would your placement on the waiting list. The
number of families called in varies on the availability of vacancies in each
public housing community, and income targeting requirements.
