Our programs, Public Housing and Housing Choice Voucher, each have their own application to be filled out. Below we will outline the instructions for these applications along with a link to each. Please make sure the entire application is complete and you have all the documentation before sending or bringing it into our main office.
Our application for public housing can be picked up at the main office (2019 W. Pine St., Dunmore, PA 18512) or can be downloaded from this site.
Only one (1) application has to be filled out to be on waiting lists for more than one site.
When you return the application completely filled out, the documentation that must accompany it is:
- Birth certificate and Social Security card for all individuals who are on the application.
- A photo ID of the head of household
- An award letter from Social Security if that is a source of income
- If working a copy of your latest pay stub with the employer’s name and address on it. Or a letter from your employer stating your hours and rate of pay.
After receiving the application staff will input the application and you will be placed on the waiting lists for all of the developments you have chosen. Staff will notify you by phone or letter when your name gets to the top of the list. It is important to notify our office whenever your information changes from the original application.
