Apartment Checklist

Check For Waiting Lists

Most apartments have waiting lists. Search early and do not just settle on one apartment choice.

Contact Your Local Housing Authority

Housing authorities have many opportunities. Many do have closed waiting lists, but they may be able to provide other public housing resources.

Check The Federal Poverty Sliding Scale Guidelines

Check to see if you qualify for low cost or free housing by comparing the guidelines to your income records.
