HOUSING AUTHORITY OF WAITLIST OPENING

The Housing Authority of Paducah will reopen its public housing waiting list on Tuesday, May 16, 2023 at 8:30 am, CST. The online application will be available immediately at this time and applicants will be able to apply 24 hours a day at www.paducahhousing.com/rentcafe-pha. Paper applications will be available for pickup at any of our office locations, but completed applications will ONLY be accepted on Tuesdays of each week at the HAP office at 2330 Ohio St. Paducah KY, 42003 from 8:30 am – 12 pm and 1 pm to 4:00 pm on a first come, first served basis. A sign in sheet will be used to track who is next in line. Only completed applications will be accepted. An application is not considered complete without ID’s and social security cards for adult household members, and social security cards and birth certificates for children under 18, along with the signed application. Applications left in our drop box will not be accepted.

Applicants will be placed on the waiting list according to the date and time of their application and their unit size based on family composition. We no longer use a preference system. Once an applicant nears the top of the waiting list, they will be contacted by our intake specialist to complete an intake packet. The intake packet will request additional information, such as verification of any income sources, and landlord references. Once the intake packet is completed, applicants are screened, and final eligibility is determined.

The Housing Authority recently moved from site-based waiting lists to a single community wide waiting list. Once you reach the top of the waiting list, you will be offered the first available unit that meets the family’s needs. If that unit is refused, applicants will be offered a second unit at the next available site with a unit that meets the family’s needs. If the second unit is refused, the applicant will be removed from the waiting list and may reapply after 6 months.

Pets are allowed in our units but MUST be pre-approved by HAP with a pet deposit paid before being brought into the unit. Some restrictions apply per the Pet Policy.

Rent is calculated based on income. The income limits for public housing by family size are as follows: One person - $39,850. Two people - $45,550. Three people - $51,250. Four people - $56,900. Five people - $61,500. Six people - $66,050. Seven people - $70,600. Eight people - $75,150. These income limits are expected to be updated by HUD soon.

It is critical to update your contact information in writing when you have changes. Failure to update contact information could result in removal from the waiting list if we are unable to contact you.
