Waiting List Pre-Application

The following is to inform you of the government and management eligibility requirements to reside in our communities. Housing Hope’s developments receive state and/or federal financial aid in order to provide affordable rents. To qualify to live in Housing Hope communities, all applicants must meet specific requirements for income and household size. In addition, the management sets eligibility requirements to qualify. You must meet the following criteria:

  1. Must meet the government and program requirements for income and tenant population type.

  2. Must meet the property household size guidelines, which are a maximum of two people per bedroom plus one more person per household.

  3. Documentation of positive rental history. No prior evictions in the past five years. Must not have more than $500 owing to any other apartment community.

  4. No history of disturbing neighbors or destroying property within five years.

  5. No derogatory credit history exceeding $7,500 excluding medical bills.

  6. No history of felony convictions by any adult household member within seven years.

  7. No history of sex offender status, no crimes against children.

  8. No history of using illegal drugs, drug activity or of abusing alcohol in a way that may interfere with the health, safety or right to peaceful enjoyment of others within seven years.

All applicants who apply for housing will be screened by the same standards. We reserve the right to reject any application that does not meet our requirements or appropriately complete the application process. False information on the application will be cause for immediate rejection of the application, or if discovered later, will be cause for eviction from the property.

 

If an applicant is unable to provide the required legal identity documents (social security cards, passport/picture ID, birth certificates) at the time a unit is offered, it may result in the denial or delay of the application. The applicant may be skipped over for the current unit but remain on the active waiting list.

 

If an applicant makes changes to their household composition or income after a unit is offered, it may result in the denial or delay of the application on the offered unit. The applicant may be skipped over for the current unit but remain on the active waiting list.
