We will process your application and send you a confirmation within a few weeks. When an affordable home becomes available, we will contact a limited number of applicants who are on our list for the size and income category of the home that will be available.

A final application and documentation to verify identity and income will be required and processed at that time. Since final applications are only processed when a specific affordable home becomes available, we can not accommodate applicants’ choice of floor plan.
