This closure will have no effect on applicants currently on the waiting lists or applications currently in process. Those who qualify for an efficiency, 3 bedroom, 4 bedroom, or 5 bedroom units, may still apply at our office, or on our website at www.paducahhousing.com. Also effective Thursday, February 13, 2020, at 3:00 pm our application days will change to Tuesdays and Thursdays from 8:00 am – 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm.
