Application Process

How do I apply?

LMHA opens its HCV waiting list on an as needed basis. When LMHA determines that the list is to be opened, public notice of the opening will be made in the local newspaper and through such other media as determined necessary to reach potentially eligible households not otherwise likely to apply.

The public notice will state that pre-applications for the Housing Choice Voucher Program will be accepted, how they will be accepted and the time frame that the waiting list will be open.  This process may take place at least one day a year. Since the demand for housing assistance often exceeds the limited resources available to HUD and the local housing agencies, long waiting periods are common.

At the conclusion of the pre-application period, each preliminary application will be entered into LMHA’s computer system and place on its waiting list. Applicants from this waiting list are then invited to complete a full application in order of the time and date of application.

Full applications are taken in small groups and appointment only, at LMHA’s Byrne Road office located at 211 S. Byrne.
