BRIGHTON HOUSING AUTHORITY PUBLIC HOUSING PROGRAM:
The Brighton Housing Authority (BHA) will be opening the family waitlist for the low-income public housing program. Pre-applications for the program will be available beginning:
Wednesday April 8, 2015 at 10:00 a.m. and they will be available until further notice.
Pre-applications can be picked up at BHA offices located at 22 S. 4th Avenue, Suite 202, Brighton, CO 80601. All interested families are encouraged to apply, but due to unit sizes, only families who qualify for a three- or four-bedroom unit will be eligible for placement on the waitlist.
Completed pre-applications MUST be:
- Filled out completely, accurately, and legible;
- Signed and dated by the applicant;
- Returned either in person to BHA offices or by mail;
- Mailed pre-applications must be mailed to BHA at 22 S. 4th Avenue, Suite 202, Brighton, CO 80601.
Qualified pre-applications will be placed on the waitlist and ranked according to local preferences and date and time of submission. BHA currently has preferences for residency, working, educational/training, and Olmstead. Public housing applications generally remain on file from year-to-year and eligible applicants will remain on the waitlist until they are selected for a unit offer.
If you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for the public housing waitlist please contact the office at 303-655-2160.
THIS IS FOR PUBLIC HOUSING ONLY – NOT SECTION 8
